It’s ‘Wheely Easy’ to join us!
We warmly welcome cyclists wanting to try the Wheel Easy leisure cycling club experience. You can call us or email, or just turn up at Hornbeam Park station car park on a Sunday or Wednesday. We assemble from about 9.15am ready for a 9.30am start. Click here if you need a map and/or directions. (Also on Wednesdays at Knaresborough Low Bridge at 10.00am.) We do not charge a guest fee, but we recommend you should have some money with you as our rides almost always include refreshment stops.
If you would like to discuss any aspect of the Wheel Easy group, please feel free to contact us.

Here are some suggestions of what you might bring with you on your first ride:
• any type of bike in roadworthy condition
• a helmet
• water bottle and snack bar or fruit
• some money for a refreshment stop
• a mobile phone
• clothing appropriate for the weather
• lights if the visibility could be poor
• a smile!
Experienced riders also carry some other items with them, which are essential on longer distances and when cycling on your own, but don’t worry if you don’t have these with you at first as there will be plenty of help on the ride if needed:
• a spare inner tube
• a tyre pump
• some tools (an allen key & screwdriver set, plus tyre levers generally suffice).
