Is there a list of cycle clubs/ groups anywhere?

Got myself a road bike today (put my MTB away) and looking for some group rides in and around Wilmslow

Cheers

PS needs to be a slow beginners group :oops:

    do all your sunday rides start here?

    i live in chorlton and will probably join a club soon.
    although im new to the sport i come from a very good running background.
    im not around tomorrow but would love to come out for a ride in the next couple of weeks if thats ok?

    will keep a track on the suggested sites …. I think I need to get a bit more used to the road bike (found it a little twitchy which limited downhill speed) and also need to improve my fitness. (Did 16 miles this morn in 1 hour 8 – didn’t really push myself hard enough)

    I'd say 90% start here. No problem with just coming along for a ride, or 2 or 3! No pressure to join at all :)

    Sounds ok for an intro ride.
    You'd manage 16 mph riding in a group, only thing is they are more like 30 miles but still sounds like you'd be ok.

    We're another alternative - based over towards Warrington.

    Saturdays 25-35miles easier pace more suited to relative novices, Sundays 45-50 hillier & a bit faster.

    See website in my sig below for details.
