Filey Cycle Group is a group which doesn't take cycling too seriously with rides that are as much about coffee and cake stops as cycling. You do not need all the latest gear to ride with the group - any working bike will do, though it is always recommended that you wear a helmet. The group simply wants people who fancy a social bike ride to join them and is always happy to welcome visitors who are on holiday in the area. The routes and pace are usually decided on the morning, based on who turns up.
The intermediate-advanced group rides from Filey Bus station at 9.30am on Friday mornings. The group aims to cover 25 miles plus at a moderate pace (usually an average of 12-15 mph) and may take in some steep hills. The ride will end no later than 1.30pm.
An intermediate group (beginning the first Tuesday in March 2017) leaves Filey Bus Station at 9.30am on Tuesday mornings. This group will cover approximately 15 - 25 miles at a slow/moderate pace (no more than an average of 11mph).
The beginners/improvers group meets at 10am on Saturday mornings at The Band Stand Crescent Gardens. This group is ideal for adults, who are nervous about cycling. It will appeal to anyone who hasn't been on a bike for a while; those who aren't as fit as they would like; or those who are nervous about riding on roads. The rides will be slow paced, flat, and traffic-free (or minor roads).
The group doesn't have a website but you can follow them on Facebook - Filey Cycle Group. There's usually at least 1 of the BikeAbout team on all the rides so feel free to get in touch with us if you are not on Facebook and have any queries.
All rides are subject to the weather conditions and may be cancelled on the morning.
