The BikeBus runs at an easy pace and aims that no one is ever left behind, however, when booking please note that the earlier groups are steadier than the last group. Please book in advance, either by clicking on the link in the table or contacting Lyndsay (email [mailto:lyndsaykyrkesmith@gmail.com lyndsaykyrkesmith@gmail.com])

<!--Newcomers - either to cycling or to the area - may find it helpful to join a group cycling to the Thursday morning coffee stops. Most weeks a 'Bike Bus' runs from a range of start points to the coffee stop.
 
 
 
The schedule for the bus is advertised below and riders can join at a location that best suits them. The Bus runs at an easy pace and no one is ever left behind, so these rides are a useful introduction to touring cycling.
 
 
Occasionally there is no leader for part of the ride.  Try to have the schedule and a map with you.  Where possible appoint a leader from those present.
 
<br>
 
 
If you are using some mobile devices you might find that the links to the route only show written instructions.  To get a map you will then need to click on 'View desktop version'.
 
 
'''Note''' that the Bike Bus on Thursday 23 August will be heading to Owls Barn.
 
Owls Barn is sited just north of Norman's Green which itself is 750 m NE of Plymtree.

The Bike Bus is primarily organised for Members of Cycling UK and those new to leisure cycling who would like to try out cycling in company. For insurance and liability reasons regular riders are expected to be members of Cycling UK. Newcomers who wish to try out the Bike Bus can join up to three rides without taking out membership but are required to complete a Guest Rider Registration Form for each ride.
