The Midweek Ride offers a core ride of around 30 – 35 miles exploring lanes and byways, always starting at 10.00am. Sometimes the ride starts from The Green, Syston; sometimes the core ride starts around 10 miles away (with the option for those riders wishing to add 20 miles to their day to ride out to this start, leaving The Green in Syston at 09.00 am); and once a month there is a car-assisted ride starting 20 miles or more away from Syston – again the core ride starts at 10.00 am.
All rides feature a cafe or pub stop for refreshments, around 12.00 noon.

The Thursday Evening Ride meets at 6.30pm on The Green- Syston LE7 1GQ. Anyone interested should contact: Phil, email: [email protected]
A shorter ride out, perfect for an evening, The ride is designed with a number of ‘short cuts’ so no matter how far you want to go, you can! Heading out to Hungarton through South Croxton and Beeby and as the nights get longer it will be able to extend out to Tilton on the Hill.
We have ongoing social events – last year we enjoyed a team quiz night, summer sports with a barbecue and a Christ­mas party. We also meet once a month in The Dog and Gun in Syston.
As well as all of these rides and social events, we also have a full program of Time Trials for 2015 as well as other rides and events going on, find us on facebook or check out our website – to keep up to date.
