Who We Are
The group aims to provide a relaxed social atmosphere in which cyclists of all levels can come together to meet new people, increase their fitness and explore the local area. We host daily rides leaving from the front of Pewsey Fire Station. Routes will cover about 20-40 miles in the area surrounding – and a tea and cake break will be mandatory!
You are responsible for ensuring that you are physically fit enough to undertake the proposed route, Cycling Pewsey does not accept responsibility for illness or injury during rides. You must wear a helmet, ride your cycle sensibly at all times, and be responsible for your cycle and all your cycling equipment.

Promoting Safe Group Cycling
We’re all responsible for ensuring that we behave ourselves out on the road. That that keeping to the rules, just as we would if we were driving cars instead of riding bikes. We stop at Stop signs and red lights, we signal before manoeuvres, we stay in the correct lane, and so on. And we watch out for one another to ensure that our fellow members stay safe. We point out problems on the road to each other, and we stop and help each other when someone has a mechanical problem or a flat tyre.
