CCS SOCIAL CLUB RUN AND SHORTER CLUB RUN

The weekly social club run leaves Market Hill Sudbury at 9am every Sunday. There are usually two groups; a regular ride of about 40 miles, with a cafe stop, and a slightly shorter more leisurely ride, again with a cafe stop, at the speed of the slowest rider. Back about 12.45 – 1.00pm. There is a nominated ride leader. New riders, visiting riders, and those thinking of joining the club are welcome; you can take part in up to three ‘taster’ rides before joining the club.
If you’re not used to riding in a group of riders, please read these guidance notes.
Other various unofficial club rides are arranged by club members on the Cycle Club Sudbury Facebook page.
