Carsington Water Cycle Hire Centre in Ashbourne, Derbyshire DE6 1ST
Tuesday morning rides to encourage Ladies and Mum's with young children on bike seats or in trailers to get cycling in a traffic free friendly environment. Enabling the building of bike handling confidence away from the added worry of traffic. Heading in an anti clockwise direction from the cycle hire at Carsington Water, passed the visitors centre, beyond the childrens playground and on towards the dam wall. Taken at a leisurely pace governed by the slowest participant in a friendly and relaxed environment on an excellent surfaced, off road trail.
Please dress appropriate for the weather and in lose comfortable clothing. (Trouser legs should not be too flapping) It is highly recommended that all should wear cycling helments but if you do not have 1 as a total beginner do not let it stop you coming along... (UNDER 18 must wear cycling helmet to participate on ride!) perhaps if you get the cycling bug then you can look to make it your first cycling kit purchase.
There will be opportunity for a coffee stop at the end of the ride, so please remember to bring along some money for this if you wish.
Whilst it is an easy gentle ride suitable for complete beginners participates should be in good general health (if you do have any concerns re cycling please consult your GPs advice before taking part.)
So for a fun cycling morning please join us and why not bring a friend along too!
