Would appreciate advice on clubs in the Chester area suitable for reasonably sporty recreational rides. Am not interested on racing or having to spend valuable recreational time marshalling others competing. Looking at Chester Road Club's website it looks far too race oriented. The local CTC group rides from my village but whilst they look a friendly lot, I am after more energetic riding and am less bothered about cafes. Out on Sunday I noticed some Marford & Gresford Velo riders and looked at their website. Sounds like they have more energtic Sunday rides than the CTC and go into the hills. Any insight or advice will be greatly appreciated!
