We even have our own T-shirt logo which, loosely translated, means: “never knowingly pass an open café”. In a lighthearted way this says what an easy going sort of group we are.

We run a programme of rides for the average cyclist who wants to enjoy the peace of the countryside and rides into London, good food and a relaxed social atmosphere.
Rides are held usually every month – more in summer – Please see announcements on this page about next rides scheduled. You ride in a group with a leader to show the way, and stop for lunch at a pub or café. Usual start is from North Finchley and/or High Barnet Spires Band Stand (behind Waitrose). Evening rides too, in the summer.

For the current schedule please monitor our blogs.

For all rides: Please bring a spare inner tube for a quick change in case you get a puncture.

Any questions about rides please contact Alison Ewington
