Loads of options ... fast, slow, road, MTB, general fitness, serious training, racing, leisure rides, etc. ... plus very friendly and sociable. It depends what you're looking for, but typically the best bet is to try out either the shorter Sunday a.m. ride (usually ca. 40-60 mi, w/ plenty of regroups) or the Tuesday night ride (usually 1.5-2 hrs).

I'm a member, yes. No one gets left behind, particularly on the shorter/slower Sunday ride or the Tuesday evening ride. And the distance will probably be about right for you.

We get new riders quite regularly, and there's a real effort to make everyone feel welcome!

Since this time of year both the faster & slower groups leave at 9am from the station, just make sure you leave with the correct group!

I am close to Dewsbury (Gomersal, I have a facebook bike group but not a club as such. Go out with a group quite regular on road and MTB. Let me know if you want to meet up ?
