Rutland Cycling Rides Classes and Events

We are enormously proud of our staff and the many ways they go the extra mile for our customers and the local community. As part of our commitment to inspire more people to get out cycling, we offer a range of regular led rides, including senior cyclist rides and women's rides in partnership with British Cycling's Breeze campaign. These rides are free to attend, and we further encourage participation by offering substantial discounts off cycle hire, so that bike ownership is not a barrier. Read on to find out which rides we are currently running - we look forward to welcoming you on one of our rides soon.

Places are limited, and we always advise advance booking. To book your place on any of these events, please email rides@rutlandcycling.com, or call 01572 332 032.
