Recommend a club in Bristol?

by Jambo   July 17, 2014  

I have been ridding for a few years but recently have had a spate of being let down at the last min by riding partners. Don't mind riding on my own now and again but having seen the weekend morning club runs, I have come round to the idea that this could solve the problem.

Can anyone recommend a friendly club in Bristol (I live Westbury-on-Trym so closed to that part the better? Not interested in racing, just like to get out for long run at the weekend and some evenings with the odd cake thrown in or possible a pint at the end.

North Bristol Cycling Club ....

Meets at Bradley stoke Costa 9:30am Sunday morning for 10:00 away. Rides
are general 40-55 miles at around 14-16 mph average. Scott, the boss, is a
lovely bloke (so are the rest really !!)

Cake rides to the WI at Hill every first Sunday ... you'll get fat there Smile

Saturday rides most weeks and evening rides, usually Thursdays.

They have a couple of members from W-o-T, Bishopston and Horfield (I'm
one Big Grin)

still on the 3rd switch-back of Bwlch !

Without wanting to tread on revo kid's toes I'll give some info about our lot too.

PROPS CC - formed from the annual Bristol-Bordeaux ride to keep riders together once the big event has passed.

Saturday rides of varying distance, this weekend is a social spin of around 30 miles at 16mph-ish. Starting points vary between the centre (rides tend to go south or to the coast) or the Swan at Almondsbury (rides tend to go north or into Wales). We run trips away and a monthly social too

None more friendlier, home of the fastest toilet in the world, friends of world champ ironmen and purveyors of the finest cake in the southwest.
