Escape the city for rides in beautiful lanes with other business professionals. Attend events and discover all things cycling with talks from speakers from the world of cycling and professional sport.

At the core of BDOVELO’s commitment to cycling and networking are our group rides which are carefully planned with the routes available in advance on GPX file. Experienced ride captains take care of navigational duties and ensure everyone enjoys their ride irrespective of ability or speed. The rides are fully supported with a following car and mechanical support from VONCRANK.
All of our rides start with light refreshments and finish with a tasty meal and a speaker from the world of cycling, ensuring plenty of time for networking before, during and after your ride enabling you to generate 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.

Surrey Ride

June 8, 2017 - 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Enjoy a ride through the tranquil lanes of the North Downs, including an ascent of iconic Box Hill. There will be plenty of other climbs to tick off along the way, before enjoying a hearty lunch at Bramley Golf Club.

We are delighted to announce that we will be joined by Heather Fell. Heather competed at the 2008 Summer Olympics, winning the silver medal in the women’s modern pentathlon event, before discovering a passion for cycling. She is now involved in promoting cycling for women and races for Cannondale Girls. We will also be joined by Peter Winterbottom who played rugby for England and the British Lions and now organises charity bike rides involving ex-rugby stars.

Both Heather and Peter will be taking part in the social ride giving you the chance to chat to them whilst cruising the country lanes.  After the ride Heather and Peter will share a few words about their love of cycling and answer any questions you may want to throw at them.

See here for a write-up of last year’s ride.
