CycleOut Bristol is the Gay Outdoor Club’s local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender cycling group for Bristol and the surrounding area. The group has been organising regular rides since April 2005 with short, medium and long-distance events to meet the interest of a wide range of cycling ability. The annual programme contains longer rides on the second and fifth Sundays of the month; weekly, short rides on Wednesday evenings from April to September; and monthly women-only “Dykes on Bikes” rides monthly on Monday evenings from March to October. Rides usually depart from the King William Statue at the centre of Queen Square: 10am on a Sunday; 6pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Anyone is welcome on a ride, which will be adjusted for ability. No one is every left behind. If there’s a range of ability on a ride, it’s split in two and the faster cyclists take a detour so all participants meet at the same time at the rest stop. Every ride has rest stop; it’s usually a cafe on Sundays and a pub on Wednesday. Always bring food with you on a ride in case there’s a problem. Also, remember to carry working cycle lights as your return on Wednesday evenings will usually be after sun set. If you’re worried about your bicycle, let us know and we may be able to help. Rides are posted on the web site and Facebook group page and in the calendar page, here on LGBT Bristol.

Dining Out is a new exciting addition to Bristol’s lesbian & gay community offering a unique “culinary speakeasy” style dining experience. Our innovative approach to food, using the best ingredients and a stylish presentation, makes it the perfect place to take old friends and meet new ones.

Behind Dining Out lies a creative and talented team of lesbian & gay hospitality professionals, all dedicated to making your dining experience a memorable one.  Each of us are highly skilled in our chosen areas of the profession; we include award-winning chefs, experienced event managers, skilled waiting staff, sommeliers, baristas & mixologists.  Together we have a clear mission, to establish a new up- market city-centre venue where Bristol’s lesbian & gay community can dine & socialise in style.

Our passion for high quality food together with the informal dining style offered by pop-up restaurants has been the inspiration behind Dining Out. We want to take the popular concept of the “pop-up” out of peoples’ homes and re-locate it in a smart city-centre venue, while at the same time, maintaining the “word-of-mouth” nature that surrounds such events – all because we kind of like it….

Beginning in April 2011 we are launching a series of such events in central Bristol for lesbian and gay foodies, including our informal supper club, bistro nights and wine tasting & dating events
