Ride Meeting Points: To meet the new legislation limiting outdoor groups to at most six people Alton CC Sunday ride groups must form up at different points around the Butts. A new group must be formed once a ride group has six members. Riders should avoid congregating at café stops in group of more than six.

We have three ride groups to suit varying abilities: A Club Group, a Mid-Paced Group and a Fast Group. No riders are dropped or left behind on any ride. The club rides average between 13 to 15mph, depending upon terrain and cover 45 to 50 miles. The mid-paced and fast rides both cover about 50 miles with average speeds of about 15mph and 18mph respectively. All rides unless otherwise stated, leave from The Butts, Alton at 09.00. We have a WhatsApp group that keeps riders up to date on our rides. Contact Becci May using the “Contacts” link to be added to the group.

The Club Group is a mixture of experienced riders and anyone new to cycling. The aim of the group is to promote both the etiquette and the advantages of group riding. During the summer months rides may occasionally be longer than 45 to 50 miles. These are identified by a * the ride leader can be contacted for route details. The group rides may not always go to the mid / fast group café but there will always be a coffee stop!

Ride guidance for junior riders and their parents is available here. Please use the contact page if you need any more information.

All Alton CC group cycling activities take place in accordance with current UK Government regulations and British Cycling guidance which is available here.
