Through an association with Sustrans, Cambridge Cycling Campaign is pleased to announce a full programme of Leisurely Rides for 2006. Each ride will be led by a Sustrans Ranger and will explore the best cycling routes in Cambridge and beyond. The rides are open to everyone, and everyone is welcome. You do not have to support the Campaign or Sustrans to enjoy these rides! All you need is a roadworthy bike, and some lights.
All the rides start from Reality Checkpoint in the centre of Parker’s Piece at 1 pm on the second Sunday of each month. The pace is always leisurely and we do not leave anyone behind. We are normally back by about 4.30 pm in the winter and later in the summer. It’s not just about cycling: sometimes the rides have a theme such as fruit picking, a visit to a working windmill, open studios or an organic farm. On rare occasions special rides are organised with a different start time and other practicalities. Keep an eye on the Newsletter diary page or on-line for details.
