One of the biggest aspects of B&DCC is our wide range of social rides.
We have regular, club-organised social road rides on a Saturday and Sunday and have mid week MTB rides plus monthly Saturday MTB rides.
We also have a lot of member-organised social riding going on. People will decide they want to get a group together on an ad-hoc or regular basis to go and ride somewhere.
There’s also a bunch of mid-week training that goes on, with people riding on Zwift, Harthill Hill Training, etc. Which is not quite the competitive stuff, as it’s social training.
So to find out more about what the club offers:
Or to just find a ride that’s been planned (be it a regular, a one off, a sportive/audax/race that some people are doing or a more social event) visit:
What do I need to bring with me?
In addition to your bike, helmet and yourself, please make sure you carry the essentials with you during the ride:
- Two spare inner tubes – correctly sized for your bike
- Pump and/or CO2 canisters with valve
- Tyre levers
- Emergency food bar
You may also wish to take a small lock with you for the café stop.
If you are unsure how to change an inner tube, you can find many videos on YouTube showing you how or simply ask a B&DCC member to show you how. Don’t worry if you have a puncture on one of our group rides and don’t know how to change an inner tube as there is always someone on the ride who can help. We do strongly recommend you learn yourself in order to be completely self-sufficient.
