Southern Saturday Afternoon Ride, every week from The Reservoir Pub, Earlswood, Warwickshire. Check the calendar and ride update sections of our Website before setting off: http://www.ctc-heartofengland.org.uk/
You are invited to register for our popular early season event which will be held on Sunday 29th March from Farndon near Chester.
It is a 50 mile course through quiet Cheshire lanes and over the Welsh border. The challenge is to ride it in either 4 or 5 hours and eat our generous lunch within that time slot. For those that would like a more sociable pace, there is also a shorter 50k route.
CTC affiliated project, Sheffield Cycling 4 All, has won Cycle Sheffield's 'Grassroots Cycling Initiative the Year' award. This is great news for the project, and is a just reward for the hard work of the new steering group formed back in April 2014.
The all-ability cycling project in Sheffield, originally part of the Cycle Champions Programme, was set up and delivered by Steve Marsden in 2010. The project offered people with disabilities the opportunity to ride a wide array of adapted bikes in the safe surroundings of the city's Hillsborough Park.
This is an easy social ride, people simply meet, ride, enjoy, chat, learn and become more confident - this ride will finish at Tandem Coffee House for those who fancy a chat, drink and a cake in lovely surroundings with great company
Jasuben had been wanting to join her husband on family rides for many years but had never had the opportunity to learn to cycle until she heard of some adult cycle sessions run through CTC's Cycle Champions project in Leicester. Now, she's not only cycling but she's gained lots of confidence too.
Jasuben heard about the cycle training course via Sanskar Radio and her immediate thought was to have a go. She said: "I’ve been wanting to cycle for years and never got around to it; never had this kind of facility before. My husband always pushed me to ride because whenever we go on holiday we can’t hire bikes".
