Below is a brief overview of the main activities MSSC runs; in addition to those listed, the club is always open to suggestions of new activities, and will signpost members to other clubs and organisations, as appropriate.


Our tandem cycle rides, of varying lengths, take place on the first Sunday and third Saturday of each month, starting in the morning from Old Rutlishians Sports Ground.

All abilities are welcome, from beginners to seasoned cyclists.

Each ride will take a circular route on quiet roads as much as possible, to a refreshment stop at a cafe and then back.

Solo cyclists are also welcome.

Up to four levels of rides take place on each of these days, varying from a training ride for beginner pilots and stokers, through to a hard ride for the fitter cyclists. All rides are led by an experienced ride leader, supported by a deputy and usually a trained first-aider.

Throughout the seasons, there are regular walks in town, in local parks, and out in the country which are popular with our members and their dogs. Walks are usually held on the last weekend of the month.

Arts, Books & Culture (ABC) Discussion Group

The MSSC Arts, Books & Culture (ABC) Discussion Group is a fun and friendly forum where members can have a discussion, not just based on a book, but on a range of topics, accessed via whichever medium is applicable.  Members of the group take it in turns to choose the material to be discussed.  The focus of discussion can be anything from a poem, lyrics from a song, a news or magazine article, a  scientific or cultural paper,  to an advert, an idea  or even an overheard conversation.

It is not a pre requisite to have read the book, poem, article, etc. Participants will just need a willingness either to contribute with their own thoughts or simply to listen. The primary aim is to inspire and fire our mental neurons in a positive, inspirational and enjoyable way.

Bernard is the Chair of the group and sees that the meetings have a loose structure and direction.  He always reads/listens to whatever material is proposed and leads the group on discussing any themes or ideas which arise.

The group was launched in January 2024 and topics discussed so far have included  Models of Disability and Claire Keegan’s novel, “Small Things Like These.”

The group is held at Ganley’s Irish Bar once every two months, from 6pm to 7pm on the first Tuesday evening of the month, preceding MSSC’s pub social.

Tuesday Night Social Evenings

The monthly drop-in social takes place on the first Tuesday evening of each month from 7.30pm at Ganley’s Irish Bar, 43-47 London Road, Morden SM4 5HP.

The pub is about two minutes’ walk from Morden Underground Station, which is at the southern end of the Northern Line. We can arrange for someone to meet you at the station to guide you to the pub, just across the road from the station. If you arrive on your own, once you have entered the pub, turn right and you will find the MSSC crowd in a side room.

Please join fellow members for a chat, a drink, perhaps something to eat from the pub’s varied, reasonably priced menu, a friendly game of darts, and the occasional quiz.
