Worcester

Cycling Long

Meet at café located on Grandstand Road close to viaduct, WR1 3EJ on Monday at 09.30 hrs.

Leader and Contact: Jeff Clayton

The U3A Long Cycling Group meets on a Monday morning every other week. A full programme is decided shortly after the first ride of the season. The ride usually starts from the café located in Grandstand Road in Worcester City at 9:30 a.m. The first ride for the year 2018/2019 will be on 10th September 2018 starting at 9:30.

Our rides are approximately 25-30 miles in length and the pace is 10-12 mph, but we keep together as a group. Occasionally the distance may be as much as 35 miles. Rides are mainly on public roads and the back lanes of Worcestershire.

Members of the group are encouraged to act as ride leaders and to try and explore new routes around Worcester. The Group Leader will inform members of the Group as to who is the nominated Ride Leader in good time.

We sometimes have an "out and about" ride, where we start from a different location away from Worcester. On those occasions you will need to transport your bike to the start - so if you have a bike rack for your car so much the better. If you are able to take more than one bike plus rider, let the nominated ride leader know!

We also stop towards the end of the ride for a refreshment break and a natter!

The group is open to anyone who is of good health and fitness who is capable of cycling a distance of 25 miles at an average pace of 10 to 12 mph. If any new members wish to have a trial ride to assist in their decision to join the group then they are welcome to join a ride. The rider’s bike must be well maintained and roadworthy with sufficient on-board tools and spares to fix minor jobs, such as a puncture, whilst out and about. The appropriate safety helmet and bright cycling clothing is also considered essential.
