River Park Leisure Centre, Gordon Road, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 7DD
We’ll meet by the entrance.
A gentle beginner’s ride with an all important refreshment stop!
This easy ride around the ancient capital of England includes picturesque streets and historical sites with a stop at a tea shop to rest the legs and have a natter. A mostly flat ride on quiet roads, short stretches on slightly busier roads
Sights include: Cathedral, Water Meadows, St Catherine's Hill, St Cross Hospital, and Winchester College.
Wearing a helmet is advisable but not essential; 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. Please note all children under the age of 16 MUST wear a helmet – this is only applicable to women and children rides.
It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack. Please bring some money to buy refreshments. Dress appropriately for the weather: in cool weather it's good to wear lots of thin layers, so you can add/remove them as needed; a rain jacket is a good idea too!
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.
