Club Rides - Saturday Saunter

These rides are great as an introduction to club riding due to there short nature and relaxed pace.

Saturday Saunter rides depart from the corner of Turner Lane and High Street, Whiston at 9:00am prompt.

Saturday club rides are much shorter than a Sunday ride, we will be on the road for around 2 and a half hours riding at ~13mph.

Including the café stop we're usually back in the village for around 12:30pm.

Please take time to read our Risk Assessment on Road Riding.
