Clapham Chasers has a strong cycling background and a team of experienced riders who run sessions suitable for everyone from novice to advanced cyclists. 

We have four regular sessions that you can join every week. Please follow the links below to find out more about these sessions and how to get involved:   
  • Weekend Cycling  our principal long training ride takes place every Saturday morning and we run a social long ride on a Sunday. Each ride has both short and long route options and various pace groups for all abilities. 

    If you are new to the Chasers, group riding, or would like more information about how to prepare, see the following pages:
    • Introductory Club Ride  - We run intro rides for those new to Chasers or new to cycling as often as we can. Spaces are limited depending on the availability of our volunteer leaders and are advertised to club members first via our facebook forum - this is the best way to book a place. Please also email cycling.chasers@gmail.com to find out when our next intro will be and to book a place. Please see New Members section below for more information.  

    • Novices

    We are an inclusive club and welcoming to all newcomers irrespective of gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status etc. All we ask is that you come along with a drop handlebar road bike, a helmet and a sense of adventure! As with all Chasers training sessions, you take part entirely at your own risk. Please consider this and the safety of other cyclists before joining a training ride. Please also see the Insurance page for important information regarding insurance with regard to club sessions.

      Please let us know the following:

      •          how often you currently ride 
      •          group riding experience – novice/competent/very experienced
      •          which pace group you think you may be riding with (check website http://www.claphamchasers.co.uk/saturdayride- if you have no idea this is also fine, we will help you decide on a intro ride
      •          that you have read the cycle pages on what to bring and how to ride in a group

      With the above in mind it is worth noting that the club has a huge variation in ability, including fitness and group riding skill. We are very friendly and our sessions (weekday and Sunday in particular) accommodate a range of abilities. Cycling is a popular part of the club and we try to put on as many intro rides as possible for the benefit of new and current members. 

      We receive a lot of new member enquiries so please be patient, but do feel free to ask anything you are unsure of.

      Happy Cycling!
