Chasers Cycle Sessions
The main focus of the club is road cycling, and our club rides are oriented towards it. Cycling is a popular part of the club and we try to provide a range of rides to accommodate all levels of ability and fitness. We are a very friendly and inclusive club and our sessions (weekday and Sunday in particular) accommodate a wide range of abilities.
New members can join our weekday and Sunday rides straight away, so join the club and you will have access to all the details for these sessions as posted on our members facebook page each week. For the Saturday Group Ride you will need to join an Intro Ride first or provide evidence of prior experience.
What if you don't own a road bike or road cycling is not your thing? If there’s any other type of cycling you would like to try, why not start a group and grow a small community? We have groups of cyclo-cross riders, gravel riders, bike packers, track enthusiasts, crit racers... who have started their own following. If you would like to try to something new, from hybrid or mountain bike rides to penny-farthing, drop us a line and we can get you in touch with experienced members that can help you use the club resources to get your own group going.
We run two interval sessions at Richmond Park when day light and weather permit, from Spring to October, on Tuesday evening and Thursday morning, and a hill reps session in College Rd, up to Crystal Palace.
We run a number of fun, social rides to go with the seasons throughout the year.
Our Christmas elves always put on a good a good show but we also have Easter and Summer rides and whatever inspires the team.
From using your gears to replacing a tyre or an inner tube, from performing basic maintenance to advice on how to ride with clipless pedals, our skills sessions aim at arming you with the knowledge to be more confident and self sufficient on your rides.
Whether you are short of time, cursing the weather or simply like computer games, Chasers have a growing community of zwifters, up for a morning commute, a hard interval session or a racing season.
