This ride is for beginners and women who haven’t cycled for a long time and want to increase their confidence on the road. We will be sticking to level parks, cycle paths and quiet roads. We’ll be starting out in Ravenscroft Park (Black Horse Pub entrance) for a bike check and chat about what we want out of the ride, before we gently start finding our cycling legs with a gentle ride around the park. Once we feel confident to venture further, we will take quiet roads and cycle paths to Hadley Green, past the allotments and water tower where we will meander around the Green. Depending on how we are feeling we can either ride on the flat back to Ravenscroft Park or try out a quiet hill on the way. We’ll then have a stop at the Black Horse for a coffee/drink and snack. Please ensure your brakes are working and tyres are pumped up. What to wear? Anything comfy and waterproof if necessary! Helmets are recommended but not compulsory. Don't forget water, a bike lock and money for the pub. Hope you can join us - you'll be very welcome!
