Upcoming team rideout dates announced

Free entry, some cake, a schwag giveaway and even a bit of cycling - get your name down for a rideout

Since the launch of team we've been running our rideouts from various parts of the country joined by a few hundred of you so far for nibbles, plenty of coffee and some very sociable riding in and around the towns, cities and villages of the UK. Well okay England as we haven't quite managed to get across the borders yet but we are coming, promise.

What's a rideout?

Well, that 'cc' bit there at the end of stands for cycling club, which in our case is team and the rideouts are effectively our club runs. You don't need to be a member to ride with us but you do get a lot of extra benefits by joining - take a look at what we've been up to here.

Most of the events have either been from our Bath HQ or hosted by some of the well known cycling retailers which have included Cycle Surgery, Hargroves Cycles and Decathlon helping out with ride leaders and route planning which means the team can concentrate on the riding and having a chat with you lot.

The basic plan is we meet up, have some coffee and cake before a quick rider briefing to decide who's riding which route, we normally lay on two - a short one and a long one. The pace isn't anything too manic with the usual club etiquette of no one getting left behind respected.

After a midway cafe stop we head back to the HQ to consume more coffee and snacks before the practically legendary Schwagaway begins. All finishers basically get entered into the draw to choose some free cycling goodies.

Oh, it's all free too! All you have to do is register by clicking on the links for each event below.

With 20 years of road cycling and over 150,000 miles in his legs it's safe to say Stu is happiest when on the bike whatever the weather. Since writing his first review for back in 2009 he has also had a career in engineering including 3D-CAD design and product development, so has a real passion for all of the latest technology coming through in the industry but is also a sucker for a classic steel frame, skinny tyres, rim brakes and a damn good paintjob.
His fascination with gravel bikes is getting out of control too!
