Because of our members, we can advise and represent the majority of Derby cyclists. Planners do listen to what we have to say....

Cycling for pleasure


DCG occasionally organises rides from time to time. These are usually gentle rides suitable for the whole family. We circulate details to our members.


We are primarily a cyclists pressure group, and as there are now plenty of organisations which provide rides of all types we list them here and on the Links


Derby CTC organises rides every Sunday and alternate Thursdays these latter are shorter gentler rides, It also has a social meet every Tuesday. Have a look at the programme - some are quite gentle.


The Derby Mercury Road Club isn't just for Tour de France types, although they do cater for a sportier type of rider. They have 60 mile plus clubruns (shorter in winter) starting at 9:30 on Sundays and some off-road rides too.

Local Sustrans Rangers also have rides that are gentle and different.

Tandems are a jolly good way of riding en famille or with friends who have disabilities. The local Tandem club people can be contacted via their website.
