We'll go down the Billy Trail (uncomfortable for bikes with skinny tyres), along to ferry point, round the point to Beachlands (there are some patches of shingle that you'll have to push over) and the coffee stop at the Mad Hatters. We'll then continue along the new accessibility path to Eastoke and then the cycle path to Sandy Point (some more shingle at the end) then back off the island via Northney.

About easy rides

Our easy rides are designed to be an introduction to club riding.  You needn't be concerned about whether you can manage the pace or distance.  The easy rides are leisurely and informal.  They go at the pace of the slowest rider.  We will not leave you behind.  If necessary we will split the ride to ensure everyone enjoys it.

The ride is designed for people of average fitness and is open to everyone. There’s no charge for joining the ride.  You’ll be riding for two to three hours with a break in the middle at a tea shop. We’ll be using dedicated cycle tracks and cycle lanes wherever possible. We’ll also be using country lanes and back streets.

Inevitably, though, you will be travelling in traffic for part of the way, so the ride is not suitable for people that are uncomfortable cycling on the road.

Typically we have around a dozen people on the ride.

The easy rides start at 9:30.  There will be a longer ride starting at 9:15.  Let people know you’re waiting for the short ride or you might get a longer trip than you expected!

Cycling is a great way to improve health and well-being, and you’ll find we're a friendly bunch.  We’d love to see you.

This article describes what you should consider bringing with you.
