Club Runs


The West Suffolk Wheelers have Club Runs to suit all abilities. They are a good way to meet like minded individuals, improve your riding technique and give you confidence in riding within a group. Group riding can be 30% more efficient than cycling by yourself!

There are six regular Club Runs that go every week, all year round – just turn up and ride. Club Runs are social rides with a “no-drop” policy, but please make sure you choose a Club Run that matches your ability. All Club Runs (except the Saturday Latte) have a coffee stop and are lead by a volunteer leader. Routes change with the wind, so no two weeks are the same.

Note: all riders take part at their own risk. Please read the “Group Riding Conduct and Etiquette Guide”.


Saturday Latte

Saturday 10:00 – Club HQ, Shakers Lane, IP32 7BH
Distance: 20-25 miles. Speed: 11-13 mph (no coffee stop)

This leisurely ride is perfect for novice riders new to group riding or those wanting a more relaxed pace. It is led by an experienced club rider and typically sticks to quiet country lanes. A great introduction to the club, you don’t need a fancy road bike to join the group and all are welcome.

For more information please contact Paul Callow (07951 602672)


Saturday Latte Plus

Saturday 09:30 – Club HQ, Shakers Lane, IP32 7BH
Distance: 30-35 miles. Speed: 13-14 mph (no coffee stop)

The Latte Plus ride is designed to be a bridge between the more leisurely plain Latte Ride and the club favourite Cappuccino. It has the same welcoming atmosphere of the Latte, but helps you build on your fitness and skills.

For more information please contact Geoff Bouttell


Saturday Cappuccino

Saturday 09:00 – Club HQ, Shakers Lane, IP32 7BH
Distance: 40-50 miles. Speed: 14-16 mph

Kick start your weekend with the Saturday Cappuccino. You’ll get a friendly welcome and find it is an excellent step up from the Latte rides.


Sunday Espresso

Sunday 08:45 – Club HQ, Shakers Lane, IP32 7BH
Distance: 50-60 miles. Speed: 17-19 mph

The Espresso is the quickest and longest Club Run. The pace may be higher and it will give you more of a workout, but it still stops for cake!


Sunday Cappuccino

Sunday 09:00 – Club HQ, Shakers Lane, IP32 7BH
Distance: 40-50 miles. Speed: 14-16 mph

The most popular of the Club Runs, the Sunday Cappuccino is a great ride to meet old friends and to make some new ones.


Wednesday for Wheelers

Wednesday 09:00 – New Green Community Centre, Thurston, IP31 3TG
Distance: 50-60 miles. Speed: 15-17 mph

The mid-week ride is a perfect tonic. No matter whether you are retired, self-employed or have a day off work, please join the group for a great ride. Parking is available opposite the New Green Centre.
