Cycle Rides ~ Days

Rutland Waters ~ TBA September 2017

Please liaise within others in the group re vehicles (+ cycle carriers) so, where possible, we pair up to travel the A46/A1. Journey time is about 1hr 20mins

Meet 11am, at arrowed public car park, Whitwell LE15 8BL. Car parking charges are £6/ day.

Cycles, tandems and power assist cycles are available for hire from shop adjacent to the car park.

Rutland Water’s outer circuit is about 17 mile with an option for our more keen riders to extend their ride where the land juts into the reservoir. The route offers a number of locations where cyclist can stop, refresh and use facilities. It is a fairly gentle and safe route with some undulations, mainly using the track shared by walkers.

Commence ride anticlockwise from the Crafty Fox Café at 11.30 am.

Family / U3A members may wish to accompany the cycle group to walk or enjoy the nearby water park or other attractions separately.

Plan to commence journey back by a specific time, say 4 pm – subject to amendment.
