Clapham Chasers runs the following weekend cycling sessions:
- Attend a club intro ride. Intro Club Rides page. The frequency of these depends on demand and the availability of our volunteer leaders, but we run them as often as we can so check the members facebook page for them (this is the easiest way to book a place) or email email@example.com
- Attend a PB Coaching session and send confirmation to firstname.lastname@example.org (http://pbcyclecoaching.co.uk/)
- Get certified at Herne Hill Velodrome. Send confirmation to email@example.com (https://www.hernehillvelodrome.com/whats-on/training-sessions/pathway/)
Bike: Ideally you will have a road bike with drop handlebars but this is not essential. Flat and TT handlebars are not permitted on Saturday group rides for safety reasons but any bike is welcome on Sunday and weekday sessions. (Note that TT bikes are not appropriate in Regents Park sessions). Mountain bikes make it far more difficult to maintain the speed of a group ride, but providing you find a group you can keep pace with this is fine! You are responsible for making sure that your bike is in good working order (tyres pumped up, brakes/gears working properly). Please consider the tyres on your bike over the winter/spring. Punctures are more common as many people ride on summer racing tyres. Tyres such as Schwalbe Durano or Continental Gatorskins have thicker rubber and better puncture resistance and are recommended during the winter.
Helmet: All riders must wear a helmet on all club rides.
Nutrition: All sessions require you to take responsibility for having adequate food, drinks and clothing. A useful video about on-the-bike nutrition here - worth a quick view.
Spares: Please bring your own spare inner tube(s) and pump.
Please read the do's and dont's, calls and hand signals and guide to group riding pages (click on the images below)
Please also have a quick look at the Insurance page for important information regarding insurance during club activities.
