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:
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 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.
Still not sure which group would be best? Please contact us for friendly advice.
