Rides

We offer a wide variety of rides throughout the year with the length and pace adjusted to take account of the seasonal changes to the trails. Our regular monthly Open Rides take place on the dates below, with details of location and leader posted separately on the website home page as we go through the year. Monthly Open Rides give members a fixed calendar of rides for 2015 in addition to the rides posted in the Local and Away Rides sections of the Forum and on our Facebook page. They are the only rides open to prospective members to come and try out the club before joining. All dates are Sundays unless otherwise stated:

26th April

17th May

28th June led by Gary Collet

16th August

20th September led by David Wale

18th October

15th November led by Simon North

Saturday, 19th December led by the new captain

Members Rides: individual members post their favourite rides on Facebook and the Forum for Summit members to join and ride. The majority are based in the Chilterns and are held on either Saturday or Sunday morning, typically between 2 and 3 hours depending on the season and are normally at a moderate pace, with plenty of regrouping. Additionally, there are usually one or two night rides each week from fixed locations in Seer Green and Downley. Members also organise away rides at locations such as Swinley Forest, the North Downs and occasionally south or north Wales trail centres plusclassic ride locations such as the Quantocks.

Social Rides: new this year are monthly social rides on Saturday mornings to coincide with our Go Ride children's sessions. We meet at 10.00 at Lotts Wood, near Hyde Heath and ride at a steady pace into Amersham for a coffee, before riding back to the start for 12.00 midday.

Sunday May 23rd - Ashridge

This months club ride comes a week earlier than normal as it’s May bank holiday next week.  On Sunday we’ll be taking in the delights of Ashridge Common and Ivinghoe Beacon lead by John Brooks.  We don’t normally ride this area, but the scenery is stunning and the Ashridge Estate should be in perfect condition for mountain biking.

As usual there are two rides being run.  The Club Classic is suited to experienced riders, meets at 9.15am for a 9.30am start and will cover 20 miles and three hours of the ups and downs of the area.The Club ‘Lite’ is an easier ride suited to less experienced or recreational riders and will cover about 12 miles in 2 hours.  The ride meets at 9.45am for a 10am start.  Both rides conclude at about 12.30am after which we’ll be going to the local pub ‘Martins Pond’ for a beer and some food.  Everyone is welcome.The ride starts and finishes in Potten End. 

There is plenty of parking in the village.  Meet on the green opposite the pub. bit.ly/bPgUFI
