700cc. Join the club.
We started shop rides from the 700 shop in Windsor, simply to encourage people to ride their bikes and meet like-minded people. Over the last three years we have evolved and now have over 70 regular riders with diverse cycling backgrounds.
In order to maintain our high standards and ensure the experience riders have come to expect and enjoy, as well as to safeguard our riders, it made sense for us to affiliate with British Cycling as a road cycling club. In addition, some have expressed a desire to try racing and we can now offer you support in pursuit of that goal too!
You can enjoy the rides as a social morning out with your cycling buddies AND you have the option of developing your riding with the extra Training Rides. Wake up and see how the legs feel that day!
First and foremost, 700cc is YOUR club. Once you are a member you can ultimately ride how you wish to. Long, short, slow, fast, social or training. The key to keeping it inclusive is to SPEAK UP!
The onus is on you as a member to say what you wish to get out of your riding and encourage your fellow riders to do the same: suggest routes, pace and distance and encourage like-minded riders to join you. Some of you will want simply to spin your legs on a social ride, others will want to ride Tempo while others may wish to test themselves on hilly endurance rides.
