From the outside looking in, the idea of joining a cycling club can look like hard core racers meeting up at 6.00 am to ride full gas five to six hours and back. In reality, cyclists tend to form an inclusive group that cater to a wide range of abilities.
Going for a bike ride alone is a great way to clear your mind, but a bike ride in a group it is simply a great chance for a good chat. Free from the technological distractions that abound in other circumstances, conversation flows more freely on the bike.
The conversation is bound to be varied too. Since cycling is such an accessible sport, clubs are made up of members from all walks of life who come together to form a tight-knit community: lawyers, carpenters, builders, former Olympian athletes but on Sundays we’re all dressing the same club kit.
