The Cycling Group

 West Wolds U3A Cycling

The west wolds cycle group is there for you to enjoy leisurely exercise across a large area local to Market Rasen and, on occasions, journey further for a day out.

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

WWU3A Cycle Group rides are currently coordinated by Gordon Jennings. Please call  01673 844222 / 07948881121 or email  to go on the regular mailing list.

Wednesday Rides are local , mostly meeting at 10am on the Jamerson Bridge in Market Rasen. They are easier (10 mph) local rides, lasting from 1 to 3 hours, depending on the choice and abilities of riders on the day. Angela Murtagh is the regular lead

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 from Middle Rasen or an agreed point elsewhere in West or East Lindsey. Gordon is your contact for Friday rides.

Alternatively, a more energetic route for those who don’t mind a few hills will be planned occasionally. To be put on the mailing list for these harder rides, contact Gary Beighton.

We are happy to be joined by members from other u3a groups providing the activity is  undertaken with safety in mind and by prior arrangement.

Why not plan join us on one of our easier local ride or even take a more challenging ride?

Members cycling independent of a U3A cycling plan, for example at other times on their own or in a casual group (as friends), may not treat that activity as a West Wolds U3A Cycling event.

Cycling is a sport which can involve risk. Where possible risk is reduced by being clearly visible to motorists, occupying the road appropriately and using minor roads, as far as possible. Occasionally we cross or use A roads.
