Barnt Green Chuggers, founded in 2005, and based at the Barnt Green Sports Club, provides fun and friendly running and cycling activities for local people of all abilities.
Whether you are a beginner, want to run or cycle to keep fit, or want to run/cycle further and faster, all are welcome.
This is a fun group of runners of mixed ability who meet on Monday nights. We have runners who just want to run at a gentle pace to some which are happy to push themselves and run without talking, and all the levels in between. Whichever pace you want to run at we have a group for you, so you never run alone.
We are a small local club of all ability cyclists, who regularly cycle on Wednesdays and weekends. Our Chaingang riders need to join the BG Sports Club. This gives access to the club, its bar, social and changing areas. We don’t compete, but we do cycle as groups in charity rides, bikeathons and endurance challenges.
Let the Cycling season begin!
Just a reminder that we have our first lighter nights Wed Chaingang ride this Wednesday – 7pm at the club.
May still be overcast and dusk early, so please still bring lights
Forecast suggests it’s drying up for our ride.
See you tomorrow.
