First ride – information for new riders

  • Our main club rides are every Sunday
  • We meet outside SE20 Cycles (78 High St, Penge. SE20 7HB) and close by outside the Crooked Billet pub, between 7:15am and 9:15am
  • Start times, mileage and speed of all our groups can be found on our Sunday Morning Rides Page
  • To come along on any Penge CC ride you need to sign up in advance, once you’ve chosen the right group for you
  • You can ride up to 3 times with us (to try the club out) before becoming a Penge CC member. Our 3rd party liability insurance covers these ‘try-out’ rides, but when joining as a member you’ll then need proof of your own insurance
  • Visit our Facebook group for updates and any route changes for our rides during the week. Only members can post but you can still read all the info
  • The easiest ride for starting with is the Steady group. That is the nearest we have to a beginners’ group but it’s not suitable for absolute beginners 
  • If you are a female beginner rider and not quite ready for our Steady group, then you could start riding with Breeze to gain confidence before joining the Steady group later. ‘It doesn’t matter if you’re keeping fit, young at heart, wise beyond your years, or baffled by gears. Every woman is welcome on an HSBC UK Breeze ride’. There are plenty of scheduled local Breeze rides – just add your postcode or look at their Facebook
  • For all riders not quite ready for the Steady group we also run leisure rides during the summer.
