A gentle easy ride for beginners or those new to group cycling. No one gets left behind and your ride leader will keep you safe on the road.
We will be using the roads out or and into Shrivenham to the west and South.
No planned stops for coffee but we will stop for a chance to have water or juice from your bottle. For those that want to talk about cycling and what else is on offer locally we can have a coffee at Bloomfields afterwards (don't forget that loyalty card)
As well as yourself and a roadworthy bike (see https://www.londoncyclist.co.uk/the-bicycle-m-check/): Helmets are optional, although strongly recommended. Water Bottle; don’t forget to fill it with water or your favourite energy drink before the ride Punctures are a pain at any time, but you will be quickly back on the road if you carry a spare inner tube and a pump. There will always be someone on the ride who can whip your old tube out and put the new one in if you can’t do it, If your wheels are held in place by a nut (probably 15mm AF) then also bring a spanner that fits. Bring your mobile phone. Very very rarely you may hit a pothole and damage your bike so that it can’t be ridden home so it’s good to be able to call someone at home to come and recover you (the AA won’t). DO NOT USE YOUR PHONE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WHILST RIDING WITH THE GROUP. Cash or Card. Despite looking for years we have yet to find a café in the area which gives out tea, coffee or cake for free so you will need to pay for these if you join us afterwards
This ride has been especially designed for beginners and those new to group cycling. Whether you have a traditional Bike, and E Bike or even a Trike this ride is for you.
