BAM Peloton Official Bunch Ride FAQ’s
This is our main bunch ride and is open to all, however we ask that you consider becoming a Pelotonian if you are to be a regular attendee.
I am a very experienced rider can I ride with the main bunch straight away?
Unless you have been bunch riding for a long time and you have a Pelotonian that can vouch for your abilities, we ask that you attend 1 or 2 of our Greenhorn rides! The reason for this is that some of our signals and the way we roll over may be different to other clubs.
