A key date in the summer’s cycling calendar has to be the 7th and 8th June – Five Miles to Fabulous – a weekend of accessible, welcoming rides that promise to be the perfect introduction for women who are new (or returning) to cycling.
There are rides being organised all over the country, and Hampshire is no exception.
Helen, a Forestry Commission colleague of mine, is oiling up her chain for a pleasant five miles around Alice Holt Forest on Saturday 7th June. Helen knows the forest like the back of her hand, so she’ll be the perfect companion on the traffic-free tracks through the trees. And the forest’s café is handy if you’d like to reward yourself with a cup of tea or even some cake after the ride.
I’ll let you know more later about other Five Miles to Fabulous rides in the Hampshire area, or keep an eye on the Five Miles to Fabulous pages on the main CTC site.
If you’re an experienced cyclist who would like to lead one of these rides in an area you know well, then get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07717 721511.
