700cc Club Intro Ride – Sunday 9 April

Are you interested in joining a cycling club? Want to ride your bike with a great bunch of supportive and welcoming cyclists? Why not come and join 700cc, an inclusive cycling club based in Windsor.700cc are welcoming new members; on Sunday 9 April we will be running an introductory ride to enable you to understand and practice riding in a group and get a feel for the way our club is organised and the way that we ride.
Group riding is brilliant! It means you can go further and faster by sharing the workload with your riding buddies. It also allows you to enjoy the more social side of cycling and gain motivation, when cycling in a group to be safe you need to be disciplined and predictable.
To make sure we are all singing from the same hymn sheet when it comes to group riding, we ask you to join an intro ride before coming out on our regular group rides. The focus of these rides is group riding skills as opposed to mileage or speed. Even if you are an experienced club cyclist we ask you to join as all clubs ride a little differently. After your intro ride you are welcome to join us for two regular rides before becoming a fully paid up member.
700cc is an inclusive club. We have the highest female membership in the area and we have riders of all abilities from beginners up to regular racers (no world champions yet but we are working on it).
The intro ride meets on the Sunday morning 08:50 at the 700 on Peascod Street, Windsor. There will be a quick brief before we leave the shop and head on a flat 20-25 mile loop. Suitable for road bikes only, no TT bikes or Tri-bars please, you should be able to maintain at least 12.5mph average over the distance.
Please note the ride will be cancelled if the weather makes the roads unsafe; we will make an announcement on the website if the ride is cancelled – please make sure to check the website before coming out.
If you would like to join please leave us a message below, that way we can make sure we have enough experienced riders to ride with the group.
Any questions, doubts or concerns we would love to hear from you – info@700cc.org

  1. Hi. I’m an experienced group (& solo) rider, looking to join local club, was previously with Marlow Riders. For joining 700cc, the first step seems to be you must go thru the Intro ride first? So I presume I have to wait until the 9th?
    Thanks

    • Hi Andy, thanks for getting in touch. We are sure you will appreciate our philosophy that all clubs ride differently. It’s important you understand how we ride, all expectations are then on a level throughout the club. Look forward to seeing you next weekend! Any further questions, please feel free to drop us an email.

      • OK, that’s fine, I’d previously read that you wanted ppl to go on 3 rides first, so was just checking to make sure of the new info.
        So, ride starts from the 700 store, weather permitting, no kit requirements, road bike etc See you 8:30 ish

      • The requirement is just the one Intro ride, unless the ride leader recommends you need a little more practice. Then you’re free to try two more club rides before we will ask you to sign up.
