Your friends, as always are welcome to join us for a couple of trial rides, but if they are regular participants and have not joined our awesome club yet, please urge them to do so.
We ask that you please wear your club kit for the rides and follow the instructions from your marshals to keep the ride enjoyable and safe for everyone.
If you are ‘dropped’ by your bunch; Chances are you chose the incorrect bunch and need to drop back one bunch. If the bunch you chose is too slow; then next time choose a slightly faster bunch but don’t ride ahead of your Group Leaders. Be very careful not to go the front and rip the bunch to pieces and mess up the entire bunches ride because you are too strong for the bunch you choose to ride in!
Listen to the Group Leaders, if they ask you to stop for a short while to regroup, and then please STOP. Not keep rolling slowly. One or two strategic re-group points for less than 45 seconds can make all the difference for 80% of the group. Please help us so we can help you to have the best possible Saturday club rides!
Come join us after the ride on Sunday’s at the Cycle Lab store to enjoy a cup of coffee with friends.

The following are guidelines (and some rules) for marshalling a ride. Should you have any suggestions, please forward them to the Club committee!
Due to the large numbers of members at Cycle Lab Active, it is imperative that we have marshalling during our Club Rides on Saturday mornings.
The Group Leaders are drawn from the club and are volunteers. No matter what the reason for marshalling, the Club relies on its Group Leaders to ensure that Club Rides are safe and enjoyable for all members.
As much as possible we try to have one Group Leaders at the front and one at the back. The Group Leader in the front generally sets the pace and the back Group Leaders acts as a sweeper. Both are there to ensure that the ride is structured and enjoyable.
Group Leaders arrive at least 10 min before the ride to be briefed and to collect the Tracker Active device which tracks the group and can dispatch medical assistance if required.
The Groups need to be split into manageable sizes
Group Leaders must introduce themselves to the group and brief them on the ride.
