Cycling Group

We are pleased to announce the formation of a new Cycling Group for Milford & District U3A. Seven of the nine interested members met on 21st Jan using Zoom to consider the idea and it’s implications.

As we can’t actually go cycling under the current Covid 19 rules, all the activity for now will comprise electing a co-ordinator, comparing notes on cycles, equipment, car transport; and planning some initial easy routes so as to break ourselves in on comparatively level local roads.

At present the group is fairly evenly split between standard pedal and electric bikes and novice to medium experience riders. None of us consider ourselves speed freaks or champion hill climb competitors! We don’t expect to get out on any rides until the rules are relaxed but we are hoping for April, perhaps May at the latest. A couple of potential (level) routes of amore ambitious for the summer were suggested: Chichester to the Coast and the some or all of the Coast path from Worthing to Brighton.

Interested in joining us? If we get more members we could split into different riding groups such as ‘road/off-road’, ‘pedal/electric’, ‘experienced/non-experienced’. In the first instance please contact secretary@milford-u3a.org.uk or beacon-admin@milford-u3a.org.uk with the subject ‘Cycle Group’.
