Marlow Riders was established as a new cycling club after a few members trained for a cycling adventure to Paris in August 2010 to celebrate an important birthday of Jonathan Smith, a long time and respected member of the affiliated Marlow Striders Running Club and Course Director for the Marlow Half Marathon.
Marlow Riders ethos is based on sociable cycling for all. We welcome all levels of cyclists to join us….you will not be left behind. We start together and finish together and on the way we may enjoy the odd “cuppa”. We are delighted that that our membership includes 30% female members.
Our regular rides are every Saturday morning. Rides normally last for 2 1/2 hours. We ride in groups of typically no more than 10 riders.
Each group has its own group leader who will navigate the route and determine the pace to be set. Our groups are divided into five ability groups:
- Lions – beginners
- Easy Tigers
- Cheetahs – fastest
We also run informal rides on Sunday mornings, evening summer rides on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as a Cheetahs ride on Wednesday mornings.
We ask new riders to let us know before riding with us for the first time. For more details please visit the Marlow Riders web site
