Evening Training Rides Cancelled

In light of the current situation and guidance in relation to Covid-19, VC Venta regrets to announce that all Club rides have been cancelled until further notice. The decision has been taken with the health and safety of our members and the wider community as our priority.

About the Evening Training Rides

The VC Venta Evening Training Rides are training rides with no designated leader controlling the pace. The pace will, therefore, typically be determined by the stronger participants, which may be higher than advertised.

If you are new to the Club, it is advisable that you join us for a Sunday social ride before joining one of our faster Tuesday training rides.

These are drop rides, so those attending must be prepared to find their own way home. The Club advises new members not to attempt these rides unless they are able to maintain the pace and accept the consequences of being dropped.

Having said that, they are exciting, demanding rides and form a great base for improving your performance.


From 31st March 2020 we switch to the summer schedule for Tuesday evenings. Tuesday’s summer rides leave from The Winchester Hotel & Spa at 6:30 pm. There are two rides: A and B.  Please note LIGHTS ARE REQUIRED.

The Winter Evening schedule commences on 27 October, starting from the Winchester Hotel & Spa at 7 pm. The routes chosen for winter rides are generally better lit and use larger roads so it’s safer than riding the country lanes at this time of the year.
