We operate a sedate cycling group where lycra is not de rigeur! Yes we may go upto 16 miles on our jaunts but we take our time and proceed at the rate of the slowest cyclist. We always arrange our routes to visit a café where we partake of coffee/tea/cake/ice cream/fish and chips/etc. Basically, anything they have to offer!
We ask that you have cycled before but emphasise we are 'recreational' cyclists not budding professionals! A bicycle rack for your car would be a bonus as we are venturing further afield having done all the routes from St. Cuthbert's.
Why not give us a go then? We are keen to build up our numbers from the small group who currently journey out each month.
The group meets on the third Wednesday of the month through spring/summer/autumn.
