A 12 mile ride on a fortnightly basis. We meet at Romney Cycles shop where Steve and his team are on hand to deal with any pre-ride mechanicals. You can park for free anywhere around the back roads of New Romney so you are not restricted to a time on your car in case we enjoy ourselves too much and do a little bit extra! It’s a short walk over the road where we have a pre-ride brief in a quiet cul de sac and set off on our way. The speed is usually around 12mph, we will wait for you though if this is too fast, so come along and see how you find it.
The routes take in the beautiful flat Romney Marsh. Early spring we expect to see new born lambs and the hedgerow is bare. As we enjoy this ride, the lambs grow, the hedgerow blossoms and your confidence riding in a group on your bike does too! We ride a route that is circular so the direction each week will be wind dependant. You will begin to understand that the only thing that changes on the Marsh is the wind! Your bike should be road ready but I will check it before we ride. Bring a banana and a drink and (just in case) ideally a puncture repair kit - but we can help you if you don't have all the gear to start with. Wear something comfortable for you and keep an eye on the weather before you ride, last year we dodged rain nearly all season, but maybe this year it might catch up with us! All rides return back to Romney Cycles where Steve let’s us use his facilities including the new lounge and coffee area with his compliments!
Sam and I will be sure you ride at a pace that suits you so if your not certain whether you can manage, be reassured that we will not leave you behind. We will stop for a drink on the roadside, so you don’t have to ride one handed. We will marshal all junctions so you safely get across onto the next part of your journey and don’t have to worry about the traffic. We make sure we keep everyone in the group together and stop at regular intervals to chat, eat, drink and laugh! Our 4th year of doing these rides and we look forward to getting you out on your bike into the beautiful country lanes of our marsh.

We never leave anyone behind
