Blackbrook Bike Ride

Blackbrook Bike Ride

Welcome to the Somerset RC Tri Club ride. A group of riders leave Blackbrook Leisure Centre at around 8:30am every Saturday morning for a morning ride. This ride runs a little easier than the SCAT ride and so is ideal for the novice cyclist who is looking for a group ride.

There is usually a cafe stop for around 15 minutes at the halfway point. The club ride is usually around 45 to 50 miles long with a few short sharp climbs.

Invited guests can join us so contact the club or a club member if you fancy a ride out.
