hello gary
to go on any of the club rides you have to do the newbie ride first. the next one is july and will be posted about a week before, you have to be quick because there are a limited number of spaces.
before that keep your eyes open for non club rides (NCR) which the members post up and anyone is ok to go on.
its a graet club with loads of opportunities to ride each week
what riding do you normally do?

Hi mate thanks for getting back to me the club looks great and is definately what im after. Ive been riding properley for over 7 years now consisting of the usual red and black runs at trail centres in the lakes,Wales and Scotland and when time allows i grab the old OS maps and do a 3-5 hr jaunt usually in the lakes. I ride a Zesty 514 and also have a Cube Ltd Race. I would love to come along on any ride and see if im up to club standards. How do i sign up for the ride in July?

the newbie ride will get posted in the rides section usually the week it is due to take place and you just post up that you want to do it.
you can also be vouched for by a member if you get out on a ride and are up to standard.
sounds like you should have no problem with the experience you have.
you just need to get out.
