We will meet outside The Elgiva theatre for brief introduction, warm up and bike check. There is parking at elgivia and it’s 1.40 for two hours.
We will head out through town via Berhmapsted road towards Cholesbury and Hawridge. This is a flatter ( for the Chilterns) quieter country road and good place to get your confidence. You can park at the theatre and we will be returning to this start point. After the ride we will go for coffee and that all important cake!
Terrain is on a slight gradient to start, with some rough surfaces but very suitable for road bikes. There are gradual small climbs and one hill, if your up for it and If the group feel able, we can extend our distance on the day but this is a very good ride to start on if just starting cycling. We will cycle between 6-12 miles depending on ability of riders.
We ride at the pace of the slowest rider and always wait so that no one is left behind.if you walk a hill or want to stop, that's ok, we will always wait for you.
Please remember to ensure your bike is road worthy, with tyres pumped up and bring enough water. Bring some money as we can go for a drink after if the group wish to.please bring a helmet, it's not compulsory but I am a bit neurotic when it comes to your safety and would prefer that you did.
The ride is weather dependant and if I think it could affect your safety, mine and dampen our enjoyment, I will cancel.
This is part of the Breeze through Winter programme between Jan and Feb and if you do four rides you get a free gift from British Cycling
