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.

Although bicycles (tricycles) are normally pedal powered, some riders will benefit from battery assisted cycles. 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, when appropriate.

Cycle Group rides and events are currently coordinated by Gordon Jennings. We welcome suggestions for future rides. Please call  01673 844222 / 07948881121 or click here to send an email to Gordon

Friday Rides  are planned and normally commence at 10 am. They are led by one of the cycling group. Please check the starting place and distance to be cycled.

Wednesday Rides are local to Market Rasen,  shorter and last about 2 hours with a break for refreshments.

Other Rides may be excursions or arranged between members at the last minute.
