Training

Monday night sessions start at the War Memorial Park Park and Ride at 6pm. There is only one group on Mondays. Go to Monday Training Sessions.

We also run training sessions most Thursdays starting at 7pm from various locations. There is only one group on Thursdays. Whilst the aim is to run sessions on most Thursdays this is not guaranteed
Go to Thursday training sessions.

Main training sessions are on Wednesday evenings and all sessions start at the Jaguar Sports & Social Club in Brown’s Lane unless stated otherwise. The locations in the tables below indicate the routes the sessions may take in.

There are usually four groups running, join the group that meets your needs.
