C.A.B.G Standing for Cafe Adventure Bike Garage collective. Started back in 2015 by Billy from Cafe Adventure in hope and ourselves. Meeting on a Wednesday evening at either the Cafe in Hope or the Bike Garage for roughly a 2-3 hour ride.
Initially set up as a way to help with winter riding motivation. It being easier to ride with others in the winter at night than on your own. The rides have grown from humble numbers. Into regularly group sizes of 35+.
The pace of the ride is set by the slowest rider and route is discussed by the group on the night depending on conditions and what people want to ride. No one is left behind, we all help each other out should anyone have a mechanical but you should aim to carry everything you would normally.
The rides are open to all to attend and dates/venues are published on the C.A.B.G facebook page or by following the group on Instagram. Whilst the riders normally start in the hope valley we have expanded to include other areas of interest. There is often a group out on the weekend too. Feel free to post your riding plans online as people often use it a way to meet up. The rides are a great environment to share local route ideas, talk about places to ride locally or further afield.
Look forward to seeing you on a ride soon.
