Fleet Cycling in Hampshire

Fleet Cycling is saddened to announce the passing of Graham Ellicott on the 25th July 2019. Graham was a key member of the Fleet Cycling board and founder of the Fleet Flyer. His family have requested donations be made to the Royal Free Charity rather than flowers.

A friendly cycling club offering bike rides for various ages and abilities

Fleet Cycling has over 200 members and we welcome riders of all abilities to join us on our popular local cycle rides around Fleet and the surrounding Hampshire countryside. You can join a ride for free as a guest then decide whether to join Cycling UK, which automatically makes you a member of Fleet Cycling.

We offer weekly club rides every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday for experienced cyclists. There are also slower Wednesday rides during the summer months from late April to early September. All our rides start at the Hart Leisure Centre, Emerald Avenue, Hitches Lane, Fleet, GU51 5EE (there a few exceptions during the summer when we have an "away start"). Choose CALENDARS from the menu above for details of each day's rides. All visitors travelling by car to Hart Leisure Centre are advised to register their number plate in reception to avoid any parking fines.

All of our rides offer a friendly, non-competitive and social experience with the essential stop for coffee and cakes!

Cycling routes in Hampshire and cycling resources for those on the go

You don’t need to be a member to enjoy the resources available on the Fleet Cycling website. All these resources, including the cycle routes, will be useful to anyone wishing to cycle locally in Fleet, as well as for those who enjoy exploring a little further afield into Hart and the Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire borders, but the cycle club membership offers a lot more besides, including cycling with a great bunch of like-minded people who enjoy being out in the great outdoors as much as you do! Joining a cycling club is a very personal choice, and we hope you find exactly what you are looking for at Fleet Cycling.

Promoting Cycling for All

Fleet Cycling is the name of the Cycling UK (formerly CTC) group in Fleet which seeks to promote cycling in the town for all cyclists and this means we not only publicise our rides, but rides offered by all cycling clubs in Fleet and the surrounding area who wish to use our website or link to it.

If you are commuting to the station, cycling to work or cycling to school then please contact Fleet Cycling as we would like to see how cycling groups and infrastructure are developing in the town and what can be done to improve them further.

The team at Fleet Cycling is a friendly and social group and we welcome anyone who would like to cycle with us.

Fleet Cycling

Timeline PhotosIt is legal to ride two abreast on a road. The benefit for cyclists is increased visibility and the length of the obstruction for a driver is shortened when passing large groups.

Rule 66 of the Highway Code says you should never ride more than two abreast, and ride in single file on narrow or busy roads and when riding round bends.

Cyclists should factor in road conditions and on narrow or busy roads and around bends, should go into single file.

Drivers should be aware that cyclists can ride two abreast and is legal to do so. When approaching large groups of cyclists, give them time, space and be observant when overtaking. They may have to move out into the carriageway quickly to avoid a pothole. Give them the space when overtaking that you would a car.

If a group of cyclists are holding up the traffic, they should consider moving into single file, to let the cars pass, this helps to keep the traffic flowing.

Further rules on overtaking found in the Highway Code are:

Rule 162
Rule 163
Rule 212
Rule 213

The above messages are part of the #CycleSafe campaign and act as a reminder of the rules of the Highway Code. We are aware there will be some cyclists and drivers who do not act in accordance with the above rules; this campaign is a reminder as the number of cyclists is increased during the summer months.
