Rona Wightman has organized and led Five Miles to Fabulous rides for a number of years on behalf of South Herts CTC. The rides, scheduled during the more clement times of the year, focus on events or places close by such as plant sales, local church or somewhere for tea and cakes.
Fellow cyclists who enjoy the rides, credit Rona with her organization and enthusiasm. One particular cyclist recounts, “As a female cyclist who is only able to cycle fairly short distances I appreciate the social nature of these rides and meeting new friends- as I believe do the other ladies who come along, though I doubt the club as a whole understands the benefits that some of us who are less involved with cycling gain from these rides. I am also aware that some of the lady cyclists Rona has helped introduce to more regular cycling have gone on to much greater things from the Five Miles to Fabulous”.
