CERA Cycloan Eazy riders and Stockport Community Cycling Club Rides

Cycle for health supported by CERA Cycloan
BBR STats

Our rides are short and are conducted weekly on Saturdays in partnership with Stockport Community Cycling Club (except Bank Holidays) see dates at the bottom of this page for all CERA Cycloan rides, visit the Stockport Community Cycling Club link for even more rides.

Rides are introductory, fun, inclusive and slow but evenly paced (we will only go as fast as the slowest).

Before each ride we will teach and conduct a bike M-Check to ensure your bike is safe for you to use, this also helps you to understand your bike.

After each ride we will have a short time for socialising, tea / coffee and biscuits. Our rides are approximately 2 hours long including M-Check time and social time.
