Sunlight Club Rides

The club has a selection of rides that suit a variety of abilities and age groups. These range from fast-paced training rides to slower social runs.

Most of our rides include a mid-point cafe stop, however, for those who prefer a ride that doesn’t stop, we have a “straight-through” run that gets back a little earlier than those with breaks. The Sunlight also has a women-only ride that leaves Nets Cafe at Little Neston on Saturday mornings For more information on these specific rides, please view this section of the website.

To join us on one of our club rides, you can either contact us by email or simply turn up at Nets Cafe 10-15 minutes before the ride is due to depart and introduce yourself to anyone in a Sunlight shirt.

If you would like guidance on ride suitability, please get in touch with us and we will be happy to assist.




Tuesday Chain Gang

A fast-paced training ride that last between 90 and 120 minutes. Usually on Tuesday evening during the summer. Find out about time and place of departure on Sundays at Nets Cafe. This ride is both technically and physically demanding as it requires cycling close to the rider in front at high speeds. For this reason, it is recommended for experienced cyclists only.


Women's Ride 9.30am

Weekly women-only ride, sometimes straight-through with no cafe stop, but often a cafe entices us in! The rides alternate between a steady paced, flatter ride of about 40 miles and a faster-paced, hillier ride that covers between 40 and 50 miles. Rides depart from Nets Cafe, Little Neston at 9.30am every Saturday. New riders should first try out the steady ride.
