Ride Calendar -

Dorset rough rider rides and social events will be posted on the calendar below, some of our rides are regular, and some are posted at short notice, so be sure to check back to see if new rides have been posted.

Lights are essential on evening rides, October to March, and may be required during April and September.

The Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
As a Club, the DRR needs to consider the latest guidance from the UK Government, PHE and NHS and also follow guidance from British Cycling and Cycling UK.

UPDATE for 17th May 2021:

From May 17th the club will be recommencing group rides on a turn up and ride basis. Although the public will be required to adhere to the rule of 30 for outdoor gatherings, the government, via the Department For Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, is allowing organised club riding with no restriction on group numbers. Dorset Rough Riders, as a club affiliated to British Cycling, will now be able to offer rides to member and guests with no restrictions other than following the now normal social distancing guidelines. These arrangements shall apply until the next announcement from the Government.

Riding bicycles off road can be a dangerous pastime. Dorset Rough Riders promotes safe and responsible cycling. Riders attending club rides do so at their own risk. Neither the club nor any of its members will be held responsible for any accidents or injury sustained on rides. Please ride within the limit of your fitness and ability. If you are unwilling to ride any part of the route, please dismount and walk through the section. Under 16’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

HELMETS MUST BE WORN ON ALL RIDES
