Depends on what you mean.
1000's ride time trials throughout the year
Lots of clubs have club runs weekly; week days, evenings, weekends.
Then there are various MTB events, orienteering, road races, audax, sportives, charity rides.........

Club runs. ie those free rides run on weekends by virtually all cycle clubs. You just have to find a club, or group that matches your aspirations. :wink:
At the last count:- Focus Variado, Peugeot 531 pro, Dawes Discovery Tandem, 2 Dawes Kingpins, Falcon K2 MTB dropped bar tourer, On One Pompino, Longstaff trike conversion on a Falcon corsa. :D
