Evening Rides

You don’t need to be a member to ride with us! Everyone is welcome, but with membership comes lots of benefits.

Every Tuesday and Thursday evening from April to September we meet at Dunx Cycles on the High St Lowestoft for 6.00pm. We usually divide into two or three groups. The faster group will be for road bikes (racers) and will generally average around 18 – 20mph, whilst the slower group will usually ride around 14-16mph average, this is suitable for road bikes and hybrids. You could even come on a mountain bike if you were fit. Sometimes we have a third group for children and slower adults These are shorter rides titled “Bring the Kids”.

The fast group usually does a few extra miles to get to the destination, so we all end up arriving roughly together. We have a 20-30 minute stop for coffee/soft drinks/beer/cake/bacon* (delete as applicable) and then we ride back again. In April and September it is worth bringing some lights as the evenings draw in quickly and we usually arrive back between 8-9pm.

No one will judge you or your bike. There are no bike snobs, just a group of like minded people who want to ride. No need to book in, just turn up and enjoy the ride. If the weather is bad, then assume the ride is off, or you can call Dunx Cycles 01502-218118 to check if you aren’t certain.

Please see our facebook page for regular updates and information.
