After a shaky start, no-one can deny that spring is definitely with us.
Here at Alice Holt, the sun is shining, the wild flowers are blooming and the deer are running through the trees. What a great time of year to get back on a bike!
We’ll be taking a very relaxed, fairly slow spin around the traffic-free trails of the forest. It really is lovely this time of year. There are a couple of very minor hills, but nothing that should put anyone off. There will be tips on how to get the best out of your gears, and nobody minds if you choose to push up the slopes!
Not sure you’re up to it? – You do not need to be particularly fit, fast or experienced. We’re only doing a short distance and we’re aiming this ride at near-beginners. As long as your doctor wouldn’t raise an eyebrow at your coming along, we’d love to see you.
Haven’t got a shiny new bike? – You don’t need an all-singing all-dancing bike. A basic one will do, as long as the tyres aren’t too narrow. I’ll be giving all bikes a safety check, but try to make sure there are no bits hanging off before you bring it along…
Haven’t got a bike at all? – If you don’t have a safe bike, give me a call and I’ll find one for you to borrow.
What about children? – We’re aiming this ride at all ages, but children need to accompanied. If you’d like to bring your children, decide whether you think they are capable of joining you for around 4 miles on forest tracks. It’s up to you.

See you on Saturday!
