We hold a meeting for members most months at Roll for the Soul. Dates and venue can be variable so please check the Events Diary for latest info.

Meetings start at 7.30pm, usually for a couple of hours and are very informal. Please come along, if only to share a drink with us before or after the meeting. We also hold our steering meetings in the hour before the members' meeting and you are welcome to sit in on these. (Just drop us This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let us know you're coming).

We'll be adding meeting reports and details about upcoming meetings as and when.


Out For A Spin On A Spring Day 01 (with logo)“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.” 

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Scientific American, 1896

BCyC rides are open to all types of cyclist, young and old, athletic or disabled, from slow urbanites to fast racers. Would you like to discover a little of Bristol’s colourful past, or learn of its longer term future, from its parks and greenways to buildings and public artworks? Or are you passionate about campaigning, and want to explore new routes and infrastructure debating topics on the way like ‘a car-free City Centre’ and ‘20’s Plenty’? Do you want to shed those calories, shape-up and get a healthy modern lifestyle? Or do you crave the sociability of like-minded souls, and empathise with the adrenalin surge that cycling can give you?

We are sociable folk, and always welcome new members and old faces alike. We often run shorter Rides under our Discover Bristol theme that are gentle paced so that the whole family can enjoy exploring our fair City. Join our Rides, and be a part of Bristol’s dynamic and fast-growing cycling culture!
