The Cycling Group

The cycling group, founded in 2007, meets once per month for leisurely rides of generally 25 – 30 miles in 4 – 6 hours including stops.  The outings continue throughout the year (weather permitting), mainly on minor roads in Derbyshire, Yorkshire and Cheshire.

We ride at an easy pace and happily wait for stragglers. A mixture of road, touring, hybrid and mountain bikes are used. Coffee and lunch stops picnics in summer - are an important part of the day at nice cafes or pubs.

The group includes some members from other local U3As, with all members being encouraged to lead a ride of their choice if they wish.
