Escape the city for rides in beautiful lanes with other business professionals. Attend events and discover all things cycling with talks from industry experts.
At the core of BDOVELO’s commitment to cycling and networking at the very highest level are our group rides. These are carefully constructed rides with experienced ride captains and a following car with expert mechanical support. The routes are planned in advance and available on GPX file. Guide riders will be present to take care of navigational duties and an enjoyable morning out for all abilities and speeds.
With all of our rides there is a light breakfast, a tasty lunch, and plenty of time for networking before, during and after your ride. Find some common ground and generate some new business opportunities.
As with all BDOVELO activities, the focus is on chatting and getting to know your fellow members. Our events are the perfect backdrop to make that business connection that will open doors and keep your wheels in motion.

Mountain Biking Taster Session
September 7 - 9:30 am - 1:00 pm£30.00
This mountain bike taster session, run by Flowtastic, is designed for road cyclists to experience what our baggy clothed comrades get up to in the hills and trails, and for mountain bikers to experience what BDOVELO is all about. The Surrey Hills are home to some of the finest forest mountain bike trails in the South-East of England and much of the very best singletrack and freeride can be found on Leith Hill (this is a good thing and ensures we will have loads of fun!)
This half day session around these classic trails will be cleverly joined up by an experienced local mountain bike guide who doubles as a qualified first aider and bike technician all rolled into one to make sure everything goes off without a hitch.
Afterwards we will retire to the Stephan Langton pub for lunch and to compare notes.
Note: Parking at the pub is very limited, so please use the National Trust car park at Friday Street (click for map). It’s free and it’s a four minute walk from there to the pub.
Meet for coffee: 9:30am
Ride starts: 10:00am
Finish riding: 1:00pm
£30 per person plus £30 MTB hire (optional)
