Grange & District

Cycling

The Cycling Group meets every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month, weather permitting. Rides are of approximately 18 miles on public roads or canal towpaths. Gradients are usually moderate but ride details indicate the nature of each specific outing. Road, touring or hybrid bikes are suitable and a growing number of the group now has battery-assisted bikes. This is a mixed and friendly group with varying levels of experience - new members are very welcome.

The group sets a relaxed pace and stresses the social aspect with much emphasis on the mid-ride refreshment stop: allow 3-4 hours for the ride from a 10.30 start unless otherwise notified. A 6 month programme is agreed by group members and we try to vary the location and nature of the rides, alternating flat and hillier terrain.

Rides in the last 12 months have mainly been in South Lakes and North Lancashire (Lune Valley and Silverdale) with some excursions to the Dales and the Penrith and Shap areas. Bikes are usually taken by car to an assembly point unless starting from Grange.

If you would like to join us please contact Sue/Les Edlington, Co-ordinators, on 07788 643541 or by e-mail via the message button at the top right of this page.
