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.

BILDESTON COMMUNITY CYCLING

Our Tuesday evening rides  leaving Bildeston Market Square at 6.45pm have now finished for 2019 – too dark! The rides  last about an hour, lengthening as the light improves. There are two rides; a short ‘slow’ ride for beginners/returners, and a faster, longer ride for those more experienced.   These are community rides, not training rides, but good fun. All welcome, just turn up. We regret no children under 12, no unaccompanied children under 16. 
We also run Saturday morning Winter Warmer rides, held approx every four weeks from October to March. First ride in 2019 on Saturday 5 October. These are about 25 miles long with a cafe stop, and leave Bildeston Square at 9.30am, back about 12.45pm. These are community rides, not training rides, but good fun. All welcome, just turn up. We regret no children under 12, no unaccompanied children under 16.
Any queries contact Robin Weaver; e-mail robin@cycleclubsudbury.com, or phone 01449 741048.
