Cycle Rides for all Sunday 23 August

The next group cycle ride in the series of Cycle Rides for All is set to pedal off on a 15-mile ride to the National Memorial Arboretum on Sunday 23 August 2015.

All the rides are graded from one to five for difficulty, with five being the most challenging. This ride has been graded a level three, which means it is suitable for most cyclists, but beginners may find it challenging.

Debby Whiting, from Freedom Cycles, said: “We hope plenty of people will join us for our fifth ride in the series. We do a quick safety check of all the bikes before setting off, to make sure they are roadworthy. We also recommend that you wear a safety helmet and that you bring a packed lunch and a drink, although we do have a café stop on most rides.”

Anyone who wants to join August’s cycle ride should turn up with their bikes at Freedom Cycles in Lichfield Bus Station on Sunday 23 August at 10am. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
