WELCOME TO P2P (POWER TO THE PEDAL) - THE U3A’s ONLY NON ELECTRIC BIKE GROUP.
AS THE NAME SUGGESTS. ANY PROGRESS YOU MAKE IN THIS GROUP WILL BE DUE ENTIRELY TO YOUR OWN SWEAT, STAMINA, DETERMINATION AND EFFORT.
P2P is a once a month cycling group for non electric bikes. Rides usually take place on the second Tuesday of each month and are sometimes followed by an optional ‘Menu del Dia’ afterwards. This is at the discretion of the ride leader.
The ethos of this group is team spirit, mutual support and encouragement alongside having a good time. The group is ideal for those wishing to increase their fitness and stamina levels and although no-one can promise you the body of a god or a goddess, most regular members do manage to tone up a little. The rides vary in length between 30-40k and often include a couple of moderate hill climbs, some loose shingly tracks and are ridden at a reasonably fast pace.
This is a mixed sex group where all members, new and old, are supported and encouraged to fulfil their potential. As the rides are always led by group members, anyone who attends the group more than twice, will be expected to lead a ride before continuing in the group - but don’t be put off by this, as assistance is always available.
