Perhaps you want to ride with others without commitment to a club or feared that a club ride would be too far or fast... then worry not because our Glide Rides are just what you need! Achievable distances at a very steady pace on very quiet and scenic country roads, with support from experienced ride leaders, plus a coffee stop for some refreshments, these rides are a perfect stepping stone to our established ladies rides.

Interested? Please email Jayne at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know to expect you!
WHO: Any non-male! You do not need to be a member of the club.
BIKE: Any bike type but road bikes preferred, must be in good working order and gears are an advantage.
STANDARD: For 'Glide Rides' if you can cycle 5 miles, you will be fine as although the rides will be around 15 miles, the pacing and support will be aimed at making it achievable for you. And don't worry - NOBODY WILL BE LEFT BEHIND!!!
WHAT TO BRING: Make sure you bring a drink, and if you think you need it - a little food. It would be useful to bring a spare inner tube but our ride leaders will carry spares, pumps and repair kits. If your wheels are not of the quick-release type then an appropriate tool would be good to bring, but again our ride leaders will be carrying tools.
WEATHER: Rides are subject to cancellation in the event of ice, snow, high winds and flooding. Check Twitter, Facebook, or the information feed on our homepage the day before the ride, and on the morning of the ride, if there are any doubts. No news means the ride is on.
We would love to see you there!
