Cycling

We arrange rides throughout the year. Our programme aims to please both leisure riders and those looking for something faster, more mileage and challenging hills.  


Leading a BLAGSS Cycle Ride

The BLAGSS cycling is successful thanks to the dedicated and enthusiastic members who volunteer their time and effort to lead rides.

If you fancy leading a cycle ride please complete (this form) with all the details. Please give as much notice as possible, to allow time for it to be posted online.

And if you’re new to leading a ride we can help: see our written guide below. One of our experienced cycle leaders can also help you to plan a route, go on a pre-cycle recce with you, or give you support on the day (either as a named co-leader or just to be there in case you need any assistance)
