live2ride bike shop -Waterloo (off Cork Street), Frome
This is an undulating & pretty 15 mile route on a mixture of B roads & lanes. Some of the route may have traffic on it in the early evening.
This route is great for those of you who are ready to try a few gentle hills – you don’t have to be able to get up them all in one go & no one will be left behind.
This route is suitable for all types of road suitable bikes – ideally with 26inch wheels or larger & some gears (experience single speed users also welcome!)
The route starts from Live2Ride bike shop on Waterloo, Frome (the Cork Street car park is opposite – or just across the Jenson Button bridge from the Market Place car park)
We will start along the Route 24 path along the river & then go through to the Stonebridge estate to Clink. Then up to Chapmanslade & down into Westbury Leigh. Then we meander through quiet lanes through Penleigh, Brokerswood, Rudge & through to Beckington. There back onto slightly busier roads up through Beckington to Oldford & through Spring Gardens back to the shop.
This route is ideal for women who are cycling short rides fairly regularly but would like to take on a longer ride or for women who want to start doing hillier routes.
We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.
Look forward to seeing you there.
