This is the first ride in a new regular Monday morning slot. It is ideal for beginners, those returning to the saddle after a long break or ladies who just want to start their week with a gentle cycle followed by coffee in the company of like minded women.
It will take place on alternate Mondays commencing Monday 29th April 2013 and we will meet in the car park in front of Hassop Station cafe at 10am. There is plenty of car parking available (pay and display) and even if you don't have your own bike, you can still come along and hire one!
The Monsal Trail is traffic free and relatively flat so it is an ideal place to get on a bike and increase your confidence. To begin with, we will do a maximum of 1 hour's cycling then relax afterwards in the cafe for a drink and chat. Approx 6 miles max.
Hopefully once this gets established as a regular ladies cycling slot, we hope to be able to offer a choice of rides starting from the same point to cater for varying abilities but then all meet together in the cafe afterwards.
The route is best suited to hybrid type bikes.
Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part. If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.
We will be stopping for a well deserved coffee and cake so please bring some money.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and you’ll need to bring a drink, snack to keep you going, spare inner tube and puncture repair kit.
