Build up to Brighton


  • Are you new to cycling or triathlon?
  • Are you wanting to improve your cycling fitness or build your confidence? 
  • Are you a Confident cyclist but new to group riding?
  • Are you an experienced but steadier cyclist (not yet confident at G4 pace or wanting shorter rides than our Saturday ride offers)
  • Are you returning to cycling from injury?

Then our Build up to Brighton novice cycling program is for you! 

The program starts in January and does exactly what the name suggests; getting you ready to join our London to Brighton ride in May.  You can join at any point in the program to suit you.

“What does the cycling program involve?” 

- Sunday rides which build up distance and climbing (we will learn to love hills), starting at around 1hr duration and building to 4hrs+ over the program, and including those all important mid-way coffee (cake) stops 

- Introduction to group riding

- Maintenance session. How to keep your bike clean and change your inner tube if you get a puncture

- London to Brighton Ride! (Early May)

“Sounds great, how do I sign up?" 

Join Clapham Chasers and search Build up to Brighton on our members Facebook page.  There is a members only event page for reference information and all sessions are posted each week to our main member Facebook page.

"Are there any minimum requirements?"

We do have a couple of requirements to keep you and your fellow cycling buddies safe whilst group riding:

- You must ride a drop handle road bike (for safety reasons) but flat pedals are very welcome

- Be confident riding in traffic

- Be responsible for your own safety and capable of getting yourself home

“How much does it cost?"   

Nothing!  The program is free to all club members.

"When can I start?" 

January, look out for weekly posts about Sunday morning rides! 

"Can I bring my friends?"  

Of course! Get them to become a member of Clapham Chasers and bring them along
