Are you a keen cyclist, looking to join a cycling leisure and pleasure rather than to race?

Then you may wish to learn of Aylesbury Cycle Touring Club's upcoming schedule of Easy Paced rides. Here they are:

Sunday 3rd September
A Newcomers' Ride — starting at 9.30am from Watermead Inn, Watermead, HP19 0FX

Aylesbury Cyclist Touring Club (CTC) invite you to a Newcomers circular cycle ride starting at Watermead Inn, Watermead with a coffee stop about halfway.

These rides are a great introduction to group cycling and are only 20 miles in length, at a very easy pace.

Any reasonable serviceable bike will do, bring a spare tube, suitable clothing, a waterproof and a drink.

Or if you're slightly more experienced and looking for a longer outing:

Sunday 3rd September
Aylesbury Cyclist Touring Club (CTC) invite you to an Easy Pace circular cycle ride starting at 9.30am at Stone Village Crossroads HP18 0NH with a coffee stop at Waterperry Gardens.

Rides are normally around 30 miles or so, at an average speed of 10 to 11 mph and are aimed at people who do some cycling already but would like to try something more sociable, cycling in a group.

Leaders will look out for you and make sure that you are comfortable with the pace.

Bring a roadworthy bike, spare inner tube and a drink, as well as money for tea and cake!

You can find more details about the Aylesbury Cyclists Touring Club club and its rides on the website.

Aylesbury CTC is also on Facebook.
