Sunday ‘no drop’ Club Runs take place throughout the year for riders of all speeds and abilities.
The rides depart from The Square in Market Harborough at 9.15am normally split into four groups
- Leisure (Very Steady)
- Steady (12-14mph)
- Brisk (15-17mph)
- Fast (18+mph)
All club runs have a ride leader who sets the pace and picks a route normally between 2hrs15mins and 2hrs45mins, ending up at the cafe in Welland Park (for an optional reviving drink, food and stimulating conversation). No-one is ever dropped on a club run or left to fend for themselves for any reason.
Time/Date: Every Sunday, groups assemble from 9:00am for 9:15 departure
Location: The Square in Market Harborough

If you’re attending for the for the first time please let Chris Dainty firstname.lastname@example.org know in advance and we’ll ensure a warm welcome and help you find the right riding group – we can easily move you up groups over the following weeks until you find your right level.

Riding in Group: Everyone has to start somewhere, and the Club Run is the ideal place to learn how to cycle in a group. To help you some pointers on Club Runs can be found here.
