Welcome!

Welcome to BikeFit Surrey. We offer fun, social and relaxed led cycle rides of between one to two hours around SE Surrey, using a combination of quiet roads and bridlepaths. Fields, woodland and hidden tracks form a large part of our routes.

BikeFit offers the following levels of riding:

  • Ride Easy Easy+ and Steady on Tuesdays at 10:00am
  • Ride Steady Steady+ Well and Well+ on Thursdays at 10:00am
Starting from in and around the Redhill, Reigate & Dorking areas. We also offer occasional Sunday 'pub' rides, Saturday social and evening 'pub' rides in summer.

Tuesday rides:
We are not competitive and exist to encourage those who think they may be too unfit to ride in a group or are just looking for some friendly company on shortish rides. We like to take our time, breathe in the fragrant country air and drink in all the lovely views and vistas of our little piece of English heaven.... not to mention the odd cup of tea and slice of cake on occasion. Or a pint, it has been mentioned!

Thursday rides:
We are a not competitive although the rides are aimed for those who are more confident on their bike and can manage some rooty downhill sections occasionally.

Thank you for logging on. We hope you find the information helpful and look forward to seeing you out with us very soon!

Are the rides suitable for me?

Anyone and everyone looking to start cycling regularly or cycle in company is welcome at BikeFit rides. Busy Mums (or Dads!) looking to get back into shape and de-stress at the same time, retired people who would like to join in a welcoming and enjoyable activity that offers positive fitness benefits, or anybody who fancies coming along to try cycling in a group. We mostly ride at 'conversational' or 'leisurely' pace, although some routes are harder than others.

Feeling rusty? Not sure where to start? Do you want to be able to get off and walk up the hills? Does traffic make you a little anxious? Do you worry about going a bit too fast? Our Ride Easy routes are probably best for you.

Tuesdays 9:45am for 10:00am.
These rides are largely on quiet roads or traffic free paths, working at the pace of the slowest. These rides are about building confidence and ability. Average length 1-1.5 hours approx. Average speed 4-7 mph approx. (For comparison purposes a fast walk is around 3.5 mph!)

We ask that you can ride for one hour on a flattish route without too much trouble before coming along.

Are you more experienced but would like some company? Do you like the challenge of the odd hill or two? (Although we always wait at the top for those taking a slower pace/walking!) Are you ready to push yourself a little to increase your fitness? Are you happy to break into the occasional sweat? Steady routes are probably best for you.

Thursdays 9:45am for 10:00am.
These rides are largely on bridlepaths, quiet roads or traffic free paths, working at the pace of the slowest with some hills, and slightly rougher sections. Average length 1.5 hours approx, usually followed by a pub lunch or snack which can take it up to 2- 2.5 hours.

If you've been out with us a few times and are ready to broaden your cycling horizons and take on a bit more of a challenge, trying a couple of steeper hills perhaps, or a few more of them, but still at a pace you'll be comfortable with, try our Ride Well routes.

Our rides

Our rides are designed to give you a rich cycling experience with viewpoints and places of interest along the way. They are on a mixture of mostly quiet roads and bridleways but may include some rougher more challenging terrain- think mud in winter! We are all out to enjoy the experience of sharing the ride with a group of people also out to enjoy themselves on their bikes.

Volunteers

Our club couldn't exist without our riders and their help. Many riders have different roles (eg. ride leaders, commitee members, social secretary, webmaster, etc) helping to run the club efficiently and making it a fun experience for everyone.

We are always grateful for any helping hand especially leading rides. We encourage every rider to consider becoming a leader if they so wish and will always support them. Leading rides can also be shared with a another person on the ride.
