Club Courses and Ride-outs

The club run a series of activities throughout the year to appeal to both Associates and Full members. These include free club courses and various ride-outs over the year. 

1) Club Courses

The club run a series of in-house training courses that are free and open to all Associates and Full Members. For 2020 they cover: slow riding, braking, cornering and overtaking. Whether getting the information for the first time or as a refresher, there’s always something new to learn. Course dates are listed below and details will be provided to the group nearer the time. 

We also run a Group Riding course for new Silver/Gold riders prior to them coming on a Group Ride-out for the first time. Run on an 'as needs basis' it simply ensures that everyone on the ride has the appropriate techniques to keep the ride safe and together.
