There is no charge for our rides which are run for free by volunteers. Rides are open to the general public. If you are new to Bike North rides we recommend that you contact the ride leader a few days before the ride.
We also cover topics like how to buy a bike which suits you, and there are some reviews of various components and accessories
If you have any questions about our rides please contact our Rides Coordinator. You will find their contact details in the “Contact Us” section.
In the rides program the rides are graded Easy, Medium or Hard depending on the terrain and speed. Please choose a ride that is suitable to your own fitness and experience. If in doubt please check with the ride leader.
