ALL CLUB ACTIVITY CURRENTLY SUSPENDED UNTIL AT LEAST
DUE TO THE NATIONAL LOCKDOWN AND THREAT OF COVID 19
The BGE (Beers, Gears & Engineers) Cycling Club is based in Exeter, Devon and offers cyclists the opportunity to take part in regular club rides, social rides, sportives and regular club social evenings - the emphasis is on fun, increasing our fitness and supporting each other on the rides.
We pride ourselves in encouraging one another to achieve our cycling goals. The club was originally founded by Howmet employees in Exeter. It is now open to cyclists from all over Exeter and the surrounding area and we have a 'no-drop' policy and ride leaders on all rides.
The club hosts events such as our annual Christmas Party, Awards night, Social events & Cadence Cafes, where members host coffee & cake in their gardens & we raise money for Force Cancer, an organisation close to our hearts. From time to time we also plan trips abroad and further afield. Members enjoy the social aspect as much as the cycling, so please contacts us, we would love to hear from you!
We have regular club rides on Sunday mornings and in the evening on Weds and Thursdays throughout the year, catering for those that want both longer & shorter routes. There are further 'unofficial' rides organised by members on other days of the week as well. All we ask is that you come along on a couple of rides with us and pay the membership fee to have full access to our Facebook Pages where all the fun, banter and club news goes on. We have all made great friends from the club.
The club was originally formed in the memory of Colin Hooker a great man who loved cycling. Sadly, Colin was struck down by cancer some years ago, but we continue to ride the 75 mile ride called appropriately the "Hooker" in his honour every year. We strongly support all Force organised rides each year such as the Nello, and organise events that support and raise money for Force Cancer, a cause close to our clubs history.
Why not come and try us and join in the fun?...…
