Sun 20 2.30 pm Ride for Joy 2: the fashion ride returns. Meet at Lammas Land, Newnham. Aimed at encouraging more women and girls to cycle by showing that you can cycle in your normal clothes, so come as you prefer – stylish, casual; dressed up or down as you please. Males welcome of course. This time we will do the circuit twice as the weather will be so much nicer and it is anticipated that twice as many people will be out and about! Hoping to double the figure we attracted last time (which was 50). The ride will pass around and through the city centre and across Parker’s Piece. Wear something bright or light coloured. Free event – all welcome. Please contact Sally Guyer at contact@camcycle.org.uk if you are able to help with the publicising or organising of this event.
