Cycling - Short
Leader and Contact: Denis Compton
Normally, the group meets fortnightly, throughout the year.
We usually cycle for about 2 hours, achieving 16 to 20 miles and the aim is to have an enjoyable and sociable ride with either an optional pub lunch at the end of it or a cafe break in the middle of it. Most of our rides take place on designated cycle paths, canal towpaths and 'C' roads. We try to avoid wet or icy weather.
With regard to equipment, any bike with gears will do but please ensure it is in good, safe condition. We also accept e-bikes. As you can see from photos on this page, a hi-vis jacket is useful for most of the year and we all wear helmets. It is also worth getting a spare inner tube for your bike since it's often the quickest way to deal with a puncture.
We will usually meet at the cafe on Grandstand Road and full details will be emailed to you over the weekend before each ride. If the weather is wet or icy, please look out for a cancellation email before 8.30am on the day of the ride
