If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together...
Longbridge Cycling Club was set up to create an environment that gives riders the biggest opportunities for the best cycling adventures. Our 'Pace not race' motto clearly suggests that we are not interested in competing against each other, our hope is that we all make it.
Road bike, Mountain bike, hybrid or electric bike, all are welcome.
From the first turn of the pedals on a Longbridge Cycling Club ride, you will know if we are the club for you. Whether a beginner or seasoned cyclist, you are invited to share the laughs, the enthusiasm and the unpredictability of an unlikely bunch of folk, all striving for a common goal.
It is important to yourself and our current members, that everyone understands, that we do not welcome heroes or egos, there are plenty of other lovely clubs locally whom offer exciting, faster paced rides, should you wish for more of a challenge, desire to improve your Strava times, or aspire to gain ground over fellow cyclists.
