Join a led ride

Led rides for everyone

Join our free and friendly led rides and cycling activities which run throughout the year. Our rides provide great social opportunities to get out, take exercise and discover your local area by bike. We have cycling activities for everyone to enjoy - all ages and abilities welcome!

All our rides are led by our friendly and professional Cycle Trainers or Community Bike Ambassadors (CBAs).

Led rides for women

Our led rides for women are friendly and easy going. We ride on traffic-free and quiet roads around Hereford. We go at the pace of slowest rider and never leave anyone behind. All rides end with coffee and a chat at a local café. Come along and gain confidence on your bike and make new friends. Just turn up on the day.

If you haven't ridden for a while, or are totally new to cycling, the team has everything you need to help make it as easy as possible to get on a bike.
