The SBABES or Sutton Bonington Adventure Biking Enthusiasts society is a very active cycling society based at Sutton Bonington. The mixture of beautiful scenery and often quiet roads means SB is an excellent place to get involved in cycling.
The club offers a range of cycling based activities on a regular basis including road cycling, mountain biking and dirt jumping, open to members of all levels. Bikes and equipment are also available to loan free of charge to SBABES members so if you don't have your own stuff, use the club's!
The club runs trips to places where member's can add another dimension to their cycling experience such as century rides to Lincoln or mountain biking days to Sherwood Pines. So, if you want to get fit whilst having a laugh or plan on taking on the Tour, the SBABES is for you!
For the lastest info on rides, go to our Facebook page.

- 4 beginners' rides on Wednesday afternoons for roadies or mountain bikers.
- Longer road rides on Sundays.

During the summer we get involved with local competitive events such as time trials, sportives and hill climbs to really bring out the competitive side in our members!
