Option 1: On Road Cycle Ride
Meet at Bothwell Community Garden
Sunday, 9 September 2018 • 10.00am
Event sponsored by Cala Homes
This is our second year for this event. Our purpose is to promote safe cycling on public roads, and to encourage those people with a decent bike in the garage, to make use of it and have some fun.
It will be organised and supervised by representatives of the Royal Albert Cycling Club. The club has years of experience of safe cycling and completed thousands on Roads throughout GB and Europe.
The cycle ride will start in Bothwell at The community Garden, Blantyre Road, Bothwell. We meet for Registration at 9.30 and start the ride at 10.00am on Sunday 9th September.
We will cycle to Kaldi’s restaurant, Baillieston (about 16 miles) where we will rest and enjoy a special sandwich snack deal, all included in the registration fee. We then return to our start point for debriefing and a relaxing hot drink. Total ride about 22 miles.
This year we will divide our group into 3. Depending on the average speed you think you would be comfortable with.
- Group A: 10-12mph
- Group B: 12-14mph
- Group C: over 14mph
This is an opportunity to cycle in a group of cyclists with mixed experience: John Campbell our leader, knows how to handle this.
For safety reasons we will have to limit the numbers taking part. To avoid disappointment, please text Harry Marsh on: 07949 268191 stating your name and the group you want to join.
The registration fee includes your lunch at Kaldis Restaurant £6 per adult and £2 for those under 14 years will be collected on the day.
Those taking part should have a road-bike or hybrid, and a helmet.
