How to join the West Wolds U3A cycling group
Come to the next meeting and make yourself known to one of the Greeters. He or she will explain what the U3A is about and introduce you to a member of the cycling group.

The cycling group is there for you to enjoy a leisurely ride locally and, on occasions, journey further for a day out.

All riders are expected to ride with safety in mind,  wear a helmet and an appropriate “high vis” jacket, top garment or a reflective sash, using lights when appropriate.

Cycle Group rides are currently coordinated by Gordon Jennings. We welcome suggestions for future rides. Please call  01673 844222 / 07948881121 or click gordon@elgo.net  to go on the regular mailing list.

Friday Rides  are planned to be of 3 and 4 hours duration, with a comfort break at mid point. Rides are a mixture of distance v terrain, depending on weather and other factors. They normally start at 10am and are led by an identified member of the cycling group.

Wednesday Rides are local to Market Rasen and we meet at 10am on the Jamerson Bridge in Market Rasen. They are shorter local rides and may last up to 2 hours, with a comfort break and refreshment.

“Over the Hill Rides”  are local bike rides which offer a more energetic route for the over the hill bikers who don’t mind a few hills. Rides are arranged ad-hoc every month or two without clashing with the regular Friday rides. To be put on the mailing list for these  rides, click here to tell Gary, the group lead.

If you want to join any ride, please give the lead  rider your name in advance of the event.
