Generally once a month (weather permitting)

Next Ride: Wednesday October 17th 2018

Start at Gawsworth Hall at Gawsworth on the A536 a few miles South of Macclesfield. Plenty of parking near the Hall next to the lake or on the approach road. Meet 10.15 for 10.30 start as usual.

A ride of contrast with some nice flat cycling and a few hills thrown in for good measure.

The ride will take us over to Marton and Rodeheath and up to The Cloud and then down to Rushton Spencer. We should be able to have coffee just before Rushton Spencer if you feel it warranted. On over to Danebridge (lunch?) and return via Sutton back to Gawsworth.

Future Rides (2018):
November 21st
December 19th

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.
