Cycling - Easy Wheelers
Group Convenors - Mark Bradley & Bill Richardson
Rides have restarted operating within current Government guide lines.
As we are limited to 6 people per group, rides taking place with a leader and 5 members, with additional sub groups being organised as required. Details of the ride are emailed to members who can then book onto the ride by email. Groups are separated by starting at different times. Start time vary between 09:30 and 10:10 depending on the number of sub groups.
There is currently no specific program, rides being arranged week by week.
Skiddaw U3A has two cycling groups Easy Wheelers and Social Cycling, meeting on alternate Tuesdays.
Easy Wheelers do a ride of between 10 and 20 miles trying to avoid the more strenuous of the Lake Districts hills, rides are at an easy pace. We have a stop for elevenses at a cafe for coffee and cake. In order to achieve a variety of rides that avoid hills and main roads we often travel away from Keswick. Rides are adjusted to the seasons and if weather conditions are too bad rides may be postponed or cancelled.
Confirmation details will be sent to group members by email on the weekend before the ride.
All types of cyclists, including electric are welcome, however the precautions taken by councils to keep motorbikes off cycle tracks have caused problems for recumbent bikes and tricycles. Where these are known in advance it will be noted in the ride details. Members can join both cycling groups if desired but we suggest that new or returning cyclist ride with the Easy Wheelers first to get a measure of the level of fitness required.
