Venue: Details are notified at least seven days in advance.

Meeting Exceptions:

We only meet once in July & December.
Traditionally in July all U3A 
Cycle Groups do a ride and then  meet up for a BBQ & pool party.
In December each cycle group does a festive cycle followed by a joint celebratory meal.
Our cycling members join us from other U3A Cycle Groups. All are welcome, we simply ask that everyone cycles at our usual Cycle for Pleasure pace & even though individuals may be capable of cycling faster that we all stay behind the leader. 

No meetings in August.    Please note that from September 2017 Cycling for Pleasure cover up to Level 5 routes. See Cycling Guidelines.

U3A Cycling For Pleasure
1st and 3rd Friday of the month.

Our steadily growing, friendly group's aims are:

  • To cycle at a pleasurable pace.
  • To take advantage of as many off road cycle tracks and C class roads as possible.
  • To avoid steeper terrain.
  • Seek to explore different areas of the beautiful countryside.
  • Take a previously tested fairly circular route.
  • Passing through a point of interest or village where the group can take the opportunity to pause for breath and browse.
  • If possible the starting/finishing point is at a parking place near a restaurant offering a reasonable `Menu del Dia.'
The participating members should then feel free to prolong the social activity through lunch, or continue on their way to other commitments.
The rides tend to be a complete trip of no more than 3 1/2  hours total (including sight seeing and refreshment stops.)
In order to vary the cycle rides we meet at different points.
Many of our members contribute to discovering new rides and leading the group.
It is necessary to transport bikes on or in cars.
If any of you should need to purchase cycle racks we have found the cycle racks from Decathlon or Norauto are reasonably priced.
