How can I find out more details about the rides?

the relevant month from our events page.
Do I need to be super fit?

ground, while others involve steep ascents and are more strenuous. We'll give a
short description of each walk on the relevant month's
events page and you can decide what
What are the rides like?
Like all Saturday Brunch Club activities, the focus is on enjoyment. The rides
are relaxed, friendly and very welcoming to new members. We usually go to a pub
or cafe for a bite to eat at lunchtime.
What will I need?
Adapted for the weather conditions this is the basic kit. Always bring a
waterproof even in the Summer as you just never know!
gloves - essential in winter, optional in summer
ideally base layer and wind proof cycling top.
Alternatively, t-shirt and light fleece are fine.
ideally cycling shorts or trousers. Other fast-drying,
water resistant trousers or shorts are fine too. Jeans are not recommended as
they become heavy and uncomfortable when wet.
