Cycling For Fun


Jill Wassell

John Moses

The group is open to all u3a members who own a bicycle in good working order and who are able to ride it a reasonable distance.

Rides are suitable for both electric and purely pedal-powered cycles. Some routes will not be suitable for the entire group owing to type of terrain and distance, but there will be regular rides in which all members with a minimum ability can participate.

Any member may propose a route to the group and lead the ride. The ride will define: rendez-vous locations, timings, expected distances and elevations, as well as the mode of cycling, equipment required and the anticipated rider ability. They will also identify availability of food stops on the proposed route.

Group members are required to read the risk assessment document and to sign the disclaimer before receiving the ride details. Helmets are strongly recommended for any rides and lights and/or visible clothing recommended for road rides. The suitability of the rendez-vous point for parking will be advised as part of the proposed route plan, but it will be up to individual riders to arrive at the start with their cycles.

Individual riders should check the weather forecast prior to the ride and, in poor conditions, should confirm with the leader whether the ride will go ahead or not.
