Cycling gets you outdoors into the fresh air, where there are fabulous views to nourish you. It is a great way to get your body moving, and to improve your physical fitness.
More importantly it's also great fun and very sociable.
These rides are designed as a gentle reintroduction to cycling for those who haven't been on a bike for years. They take place on purpose built, graded tracks at Haldon forest, so there’s no need to worry about traffic. There’s a café on site if you fancy a coffee or tea after the ride.
Your leader is Cathy Debenham, a cycling enthusiast and a qualified British Cycling Mountain Bike Leader.
If you haven't got a bike then you can get started by hiring one from Forest Cycle Hire at the Haldon Forest site. Ideally you will have a mountain bike, but a hybrid is OK on the beginners trails.
Pay weekly: £10
Five week block (valid over 7 weeks): £45
Ten week block (valid over 12 weeks): £80
These prices do not include bike hire.
To find out more or book a place email cathy@bikeguidedevon or ring 07786 440129.
NB: The end time may vary depending on the fitness and size of the group. There is a cafe on site for those who would like to extend the social element of the ride.
If you are worried about joining a group, you can arrange an hour's 1-2-1 ride with Cathy first to build your confidence: £40.
