Get On Your Bike! Monday evening cycling group


Target group and approach

The ‘Get on your bike‘ Monday evening group is intended for novice cyclists. Everyone is welcome, young and old. It is a social ride: we leave together, and we finish together!

You will learn to ride in a group, discover fun routes around Utrecht and work on your fitness and basic cycling techniques (cadence, shifting, etc.). The length of the rides varies between 25 to 65 km. We start with shorter rides due to limited day light. We then gradually increase the distance, and the level of required fitness also increases.

During the various rides we will dedicate time to the following skills:

  • Material maintenance
  • Communication within the group during the ride
  • Cycling in echelon formation
  • Cycling through curves
  • Climbing and descending technique

Depending on the number of participants, we will cycle in groups of different levels.
• C-level. This group will always be present. The average speed is approximately 26-27 km/h.
• B-level, if there are enough attendees and enthusiasm. A group with an average of approximately 28-30 km/h

Our advice: When in doubt, go with the easiest group the first time.

Start time and location

We leave on Mondays at 7 PM from the square at café Klein Berlijn, Helling 87 Utrecht. After the rides, everyone is welcome to stay for drinks, again at Café Klein Berlijn.

Requirements and equipment

Ability to cycle, a road bike is required, and a helmet is mandatory. Click shoes are optional. Don’t forget to bring lights if it gets dark early! Riding is at your own risk. We recommend becoming a member of the NTFU (Dutch Cycling Organisation), because of the insurance they offer.
