Tandem Cycling with MSSC

Merton Sport and Social Club (MSSC) run Tandem cycle rides on the first Sunday and third Saturday of each month.

Four different levels of rides are on offer, from Level 1 for beginners to the far more challenging Level 4 for experienced cyclists.

However, we can only run as many rides as we have ride leaders available.

A description of the different levels of the rides are below this section and on the online registration form.

Download directions:   Old Ruts from Morden Underground Station

MSSC’s tandems are now based at Old Rutlishians’ Sports Ground, Poplar Road, Merton Park SW19 3JS. 

Which is approximately within fifteen minutes’ walk of Morden Underground Station, Morden Road and Merton Park tram stops, South Merton Railway Station and several bus routes including the K5, 80, 93, 118, 154, 157, 163, 164, 201, 293 and 470.

However, please let us know if you would like to be met at a station, bus or tram stop and shown the route to Old Ruts, at least for the first time you come to the new venue.

If you have any issues with the online form, please get in touch. Email: tandemmanagement@mssc.org.uk

Ride difficulty Levels and  times below

Level 1
Short and flat: for those starting out or returning after a break.
Meet at 10.00 am, return by 1.00 am
Approximately 10-25km

– Level 2
Short with the occasional, gradual climb: for building confidence, bike skills and fitness.
Meet at 9.30 am, return by 2.00 pm
Approximately 25-40km

– Level 3
Long with some moderate climbs: for those wanting to push themselves and build their strength and endurance.
Meet at 9.00 am, return by 3.00 pm
Approximately 40-60km

– Level 4
Challenging with steep climbs – for those with a high level of endurance and strength, really wanting to push themselves.
Meet at 8.30 am, return by 3.30 pm
Approximately 60-100km

 

We are also delighted to report that we know of a couple of individuals in the area who would be happy to look after guide dogs while their owners are out cycling.  Let us know if you would like to take advantage of this kind offer. Email: tandemmanagement@mssc.org.uk

 

To find out how to become a member of MSSC and to pay the £15 annual subscription, please email membership@mssc.org.uk.

 

Please remember that considerable effort is made to try to secure enough pilots to make sure every stoker who registers has a place on a ride, so if you find you no longer need a place, we would appreciate knowing as soon as possible, as that is potentially one less pilot we need to find and your place could be offered to another stoker on the waiting list.  While we recognise that some changes to your plans are unavoidable, we ask that you check you are available before signing up for a ride and let us know immediately if you can no longer attend.

Look forward to seeing you on a ride soon.

Tandem Rides in Aug with MSSC

Group photo of smiling tandem cyclists and their pilots in the countryside at the camera Text says Tandem Cycling with Merton Sports and Social Club
Venue:
67 Clarendon Road, Colliers Wood, London, SW19 2DX
Time:
varied 9am, 9:30am, 10am - varied
Phone:
Date:
01st August 2021
Cost:
Free to try out


Booking up Rides in July and August with MSSC

Merton Sports and Social Club for Visually Impaired People Rides will take place on the first Sunday and third Saturday of each month, sufficient pilots and ride leaders permitting.  We regret that your place cannot be guaranteed until we have secured enough pilots.  If we do not have enough pilots or ride leaders to run four rides, we will have to decide which ride levels are viable given the pilots and leaders available.

We are still trialling a new google online form which we ask all pilots and stokers to complete, in order to sign up for a particular ride.

Tandem Ride Sign Up

To book for a ride on Sunday 1st August, please use the following link:-

https://forms.gle/HbHavEJsRvhLGzrq5

To book for a ride on Saturday 21st August, please use the following link:-

https://forms.gle/Djp86yq5tZoBh5od9

As usual places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to paid up members, and you should receive confirmation no later than the Thursday before the ride.

Again, we regret that your place cannot be confirmed until we have secured enough pilots and ride leaders.

You are welcome to try out a few activities before committing to becoming a member.

 

Ride Leaders Needed

We urgently need to expand our pool of ride leaders as well as pilots.  If you have experience of leading cycle rides or would be keen to have a go, we would love to hear from you.

If interested, training is given 👉 Please email Cycling@MSSC.ORG.UK

We wouldn’t throw you in at the deep end: you could always start as a deputy/backmarker and do some shadowing, before progressing to the role of ride leader.  Please do get in touch at the below email address and we can always have a chat about it.

Remember solo cyclists are welcome on our rides and often serve as good backmarkers!
