The mid week rides are extremely popular with our retired members who know pretty much all there is to know about cycling, including where the best scones are to be found. Sundays work for those who can't get out in the week. Expect a warm welcome, a good days riding with great company and great routes. Expect to have cake, expect a "no drop" policy. The group has a Whatsapp chat to keep the members informed about who is out.
We also have various other groups who meet up for faster and/or longer rides who coordinate their ride details through Whatsapp chats, get in touch if you would like to know more details.
Insurance can be a slightly dull topic but it's extremely important. Please read this section before joining us on a ride.
Cycle clubs have traditionally been very male dominated. CCW has a proud history of high achieving female riders and looks to actively encourage and support female riders in all aspects of club riding. Over the last few years, we've worked hard to bring new ladies into the club and we now have a 70/30% male/female split. With the national average being 18% of cyclists being women, clearly, we're doing something right.
All year round (weather permitting), the club organises a ladies ride on the first Saturday of the month, leaving Queen's Park Cafe at 10:00am. The ride is generally no more than 50 miles and is approx 12mph. Several female club members will ride with you on a pre-determined route with a cafe stop and a strict "no drop" policy. They will be able to support you and answer all of your cycling and club related questions.
Dates for upcoming rides can be seen in the calendar below. Full info on each ride, including a .gpx of the route, can be found on our Facebook events page.
Some of our ladies have also taken it upon themselves to lead ladies only Breeze rides for novice riders. While these are not official club rides, it is hoped they will encourage more and more ladies into the club. Follow the links below for more information. The Crewe Breeze rides have been particularly popular and are a great springboard for novices to quickly get up speed regarding group riding, distance cycling etc.
For those new to club cycling, riding in a group can sometimes seem rather daunting. When riding in a group it is usual to ride in pairs and observe certain rules which are important for the safety and enjoyment of the ride. There are good reasons for this. Riding in pairs is more sociable, you can talk to the person next to you, and:
There are several club members who regularly ride gravel, roughstuff or mountain bike rides. The club has a Whatsapp chat group so they can coordinate their diaries.
