now run a cycle group every Monday and Saturday, generally between April and October but subject to weather, in one of 4 different categories:
The Monday rides fall into one of the first 3 levels, rotating week by week.
Level 1 – The group meets at Rushden Lakes (Next's car park) at 10.30 stopping at Stanwick Lakes for anyone wishing to meet there, then onto Water Mill tea rooms at Ringstead for coffee and cake - ride takes approximately 50 minutes each way.
Level 2 – The group meets at Rushden Lakes (Next's car park) at 10.30 stopping at Stanwick Lakes for anyone wishing to meet there, continuing onto Islip for lunch. - ride takes approximately 1 hour 20 minutes each way.
Level 3 - Led by Lynn Gale and Bob Eames. This group is for people who are happy to load their bikes on the car and meet at various locations... approximately 50 minutes each way .. stopping for either lunch or coffee and cake. The destinations are reasonably local and the rides not too strenuous but sometimes it is necessary to ride on quiet country roads. The pace is easy and we always stay together, riding a distance of between 15 - 25 miles. (reduced rides in the winter).
The Saturday morning rides are in Level 4 and involve going to different places with rides of approximately 2-3 hours covering 30-35 miles.
Details of all rides are sent by email the week leading up to the ride. All cyclists must wear correctly fitting cycle helmets.
