The new Easy pace and Newcomers Rides!

The new Easy pace and Newcomers Rides!

In May we will be relaunching the Easy Pace and Newcomers rides as one regular group and throughout the year.

They will take place on alternating weeks. First and third weeks of the month will be ‘Easy Pace’ and second and fourth will be ‘Newcomers’.

This way Newcomers will become a regular part of our CTC rides both for new riders and for those who just prefer a shorter ride.

As part of this we are looking to create a list of leaders for the rides. The Easy Pace is up to 30 miles at 10 to 11 miles an hour and Newcomers is 15 to 20 miles at 8 to 10 miles an hour.

These rides are very important to our group if we want to be inclusive for all comers.

Many of you will have started on Newcomers or Easy Pace rides and if you fancy leading, then it’s chance to give something back as well as have a bit of fun!

You only need to lead a ride a couple of times a year to make a difference and we will support you in this role with routes and advice. Also you can ask a friend to lead with you, or we can match you up with somebody if you like, so you don’t have to do it alone.

Your new co-ordinators are Ben Parry and Jeremy Scothern, (Ben and Jerry without the ice cream).

Please contact either with any interest or help you can give.

Best wishes

Ben and Jeremy
