Retford Wheelers had a big turnout on Sunday for their club run, with 20 cyclists making the trip to Carburton.
Four new riders joined the group, including a 10-year-old, and the numbers made it necessary to split into two groups.
The smaller group of eight riders, including the new members, took the direct route through Babworth, Morton, Appleyhead, Clumber Park to Carburton.
The larger faster group went via Eaton, Gamston, Bothamsall, Thoresby, Budby to Carburton arriving about 15 minutes after the first group.
On the return ride the new rider group retraced the outward route, the larger group again made an extended loop.
Next Sundays club run is to Southwell.
Riders should meet in Retford Market Square at 9.30am.
If there are any riders preferring a shorter ride this will be arranged at the meeting point on Sunday.
