Supported Bike Rides

Build confidence or get back in the saddle on Bristol’s best cycling routes

A group of cyclists meeting in a park about to embark on a supported bike ride.

All year round


Pay as you feel

What’s it all about?

These rides are perfect for those who like to take their time. Led by qualified Ride Leaders and supported by friendly volunteers, we have a great selection of routes for beginners and returners to cycling. Explore quiet roads and cycle paths around Bristol, with the all-important stop for coffee and cake!

Who can join?

These rides are for people who want to get active or try something new, but don’t want to cycle alone or join a mainstream cycling club. If you want to improve your well-being, meet new people and enjoy the freedoms of two wheels, this group is for you.

  • These are gentle, non-pressured rides for people aged 18 and over.  
  • You must be able to cycle continuously, at a gentle pace, for 20 minutes.  

Beginner, or a bit wobbly?

We can help build your skills and confidence before joining our rides. Just let us know when you sign up and we’ll talk you through our support options.
