Hook Cycling group meets by Hartletts Cafe at the Community Centre in Ravenscroft. We start all of the organised rides from there - RG27 9NN
Pre/post ride meets are often at Hartlett's Cafe to get the essential cyclist fix of caffeine. We have also discovered that ale is the ideal recovery drink when taken in correct quantities. The Crooked Billet keeps the best pint in Hook so that is our preferred pub.
When riding in a group you should look out for your fellow riders and stay together. You should join the ride level that corresponds to your fitness. A rider too fast or too slow should not dictate the planned pace of the group as this will impact all riders' enjoyment. Please see details below on tips about group riding.
Many cycle clubs fail to cater for varying abilities. For a growing club this creates a challenge. The rides will be advertised detailing the specific ability (distance/speed) and this will be adhered to so that nobody feels under any pressure. The club has intermediate and foundation level rides but is developing novice level rides.
