Groups

Whether you’re under 16 or over 60 we aim to cater for most levels. Young teens will need a parent or guardian present, they’ll enjoy riding also! With all levels, we need to establish your fitness and competence before riding, please email us first: info@oxtedcc.org. We have a minimum level, you’ll need to be able to ride 25 miles in around 2 hours. We split groups into different speeds and distances, with Ride Leaders choosing the routes and keeping everyone together. Group rider is safer and more fun.
