First time with a cycling club? No worries, we aim to make you welcome! Just climb aboard "the blue train" for the Gregarios Superclub Ciclista’s Sunday club ride. They're social rides, with two groups Tempo and Forza to choose from. Starting at the former Telephone Exchange on Uxbridge Road Hatch we meet 9.15 / leave 9.30am.
Over a season we’ll ride the best country lanes in most directions from Hatch End. A different route each week. The beautiful Chilterns, Herts, and Bucks all on our doorstep - and then slightly further afield Oxon, Berkshire. Occasionally we even venture into the wilds of Essex.
These rides are a great day out on the bike, and also perfect preparation if you’re thinking about doing some of the big Sportives, or looking to develop your training base for a particular race.
We have annual showcase rides like The Famous Benson Run (to Benson-on-Thames), The Hatch End-Brighton-Hatch End, and our “Alpine Epic”. There are regular trips abroad to our spiritual homeland - Italy, and also regular tips to the Alps.
Short of time? No worries, join us for the ride out, and turn back when you need to. Many of our members don't have a full pass so they come for an hour or so and stop for an early coffee somewhere.
A key part of the club run is the cafe stop where we wind down and shoot the breeze at the area’s best cafes. This can sometimes be followed at the end of the ride with the apres-ride cappuccino at the fabulous Cafe Pascucci or Porta Grande. We’ve been known to extend the craic and review the ride well into the second muffin.
New riders if you’d like to come on the club run, just drop us an email first to firstname.lastname@example.org
. We’re happy for you to guest-ride with us for a couple of rides. If you're new to group riding then our fairly regular 30-35 mile Saturday Shuffle Cafe Rides to Little Chalfont are a great starting point.
Remember our motto: "Sunday izza da bike" - delivered with a thick Italian accent
