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 29th March 2021:

From March 29th the club will be recommencing group rides throughout the week! Although the public will be required to adhere to the rule of six for outdoor gatherings, the government, via the Department For Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, is allowing organised sport to take place with more than six participants. Consequently, Dorset Rough Riders, as a club affiliated to British Cycling, will be able to offer rides for up to fifteen members and guests subject to some conditions. Details of these can be found on the ride calendar in the form of a header message for the day in question. These arrangements shall apply until May 17th.

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
