It is proposed to do a bike ride every other Saturday morning that will cater for female members of the club.
The plan is to leave Smithy Hill, Thornton Hough at 9.30am and complete roughly 25 miles at a steady 12-14mph without a stop.
The idea is to encourage female members of the club to participate in a safe, controlled ride that will cater for the all abilities with no one left behind.
The rides will take place every other Saturday, starting on 24th January, but will be cancelled if the weather is bad (eg icy roads or high winds).
The main objectives of the ride will be:
to build up cycling fitness
to develop good bike handling skills
to increase road awareness and confidence on open roads
to learn to ride in a group
Please refer to the Mersey Tri website for general cycling information.
