Cycling in your Prime

We have the perfect ride to make sure you experience the youthful exhilaration that cycling brings. It's never too late to get on a bike, and we want everybody, whatever age, to experience the wind in their hair (however much you do or don't have), as you whizz along (however fast or slow).

It's true what they say: you never forget how to ride a bike.

We'll help you discover the beautiful parts of the town not seen from the main road, using traffic-free routes through parks and along riversides. It's a great way to make new friends and there's always time for a chat and a coffee stop - often with cake involved!

Comfy Saddles Available

You can use one of our bikes for free, complete with a comfy saddle, because we know how important it is to make our rides gentle, relaxing, sociable and as comfortable as possible.

Our friendly, experienced ride leaders will guide you on delightful cycle paths, green spaces and quiet lanes on a fabulous journey of discovery, all at a slow and gently pace.

No need for Lycra

If you have your own bike (and you can use one of ours for free), then it doesn't matter what shape and size it is - be assured, it will be welcome.

We wear normal clothing suitable for cycling, so we won't be wearing any lycra - promise!

Where and When?

Join us on a Comfy Saddles ride in Colchester.

We cycle from Leisure World, Cowdray Avenue, Colchester on Mondays at 10:00am, for a gentle ride out to a family-friendly coffee shop, before a relaxed return.

How much does it Cost?

We offer four free rides to decide whether you like cycling with us (we hope you will), after which we charge only £3 per ride. To join, all you need to do is turn up - but it helps to let us know beforehand so that we can be prepared. You can do this using our contact information below.
