Cycling

Convenor:   John Dainton   Phone: 01633 212349

The Summer Cycling Group started in June 2016. Rides are undertaken monthly on a Tuesday. They mainly follow flat cycle paths and are undertaken at a leisurely pace. The network of canal towpaths that converge on Newport from the north and the Gwent Levels to the south provide lots of interesting routes, all on our doorstep. So far the rides have ranged from 5 to 12 miles and taken from one to three hours to complete.

Read about the rides completed in 2016 here.

When out cycling our aim is to keep together in a group, so we set a leisurely pace and no one gets left behind. We also have stops at points of interest and a café or a pub for a refreshment break. Cycling is a great way to exercise and has low impact on hips and knees. It's also a good way to socialise, get some fresh air and to see the countryside close up.
 

2017 Programme
The programme will have a selection of rides some short and some longer, to cater for as many people as possible.

The programme for 2017, along with some safety advice, can be found here.

The list will also be on the Notice Board at Shaftesbury Street.

Rides will be monthly starting in April and going through to October. As last year, the rides will be on a Tuesday starting around 10.30 am. The convener will e-mail members who have shown an interest in cycling with the date, place and time of start, route and estimated length of time of the forthcoming ride. Rides will be rearranged if the weather is bad.
