Club runs

Club Runs are held every Sunday.

The meeting place for runs generally alternates between the Unicorn Inn at Dean Row near Wilmslow, and the Rising Sun Hotel at Hazel Grove. The meeting time is 9:30 am (March to October) and 10:00 am (November to February).

Generally ( although not always) runs from the Unicorn are into Cheshire whilst those from the Rising Sun are generally into the hills of the Peak District.

Runs vary in length from about 40 miles to 90 miles. The runs are not ‘chain gangs’ and the pace is set by the slowest rider. Although we don’t organise many mountain bike runs we are not averse to a bit of ‘rough stuff’.

We always stop for lunch at a café (or occasionally a pub).

A list of cafés & lunch stops in PDF format is available to download here. PLEASE NOTE that as of 2019 this list is no longer kept up to date because there’s a wonderful new resource for cycling friendly cafés countrywide: Cycling Cafés. Most of our regular cafés are on the map and more are being added all the time. Let us know if you know a café you’d like adding via the Contact form.)
