Sunday 21st May - Ladies Ride

The Ladies Ride will roll out from Crathorne at 9:00am.

Route not yet finalised but will either be to Ellerton Lake or Thirsk.

I'm open to alternative route suggestions if you have any ?

Both routes will encompass a Coffee & Cake stop



Ladies Rides are generally around 30-40 miles at around 14mph and include a cafe stop.  Too far or fast for you right now?  Why not try a Glide Ride?

Please check Twitter (you don't need to sign up for twitter to see our posts) or Facebook for updates regarding the rides, and weather-based cancellations if there is any doubt on the morning of the ride.

WHAT TO BRING:  Make sure you bring a drink, and on the longer rides with no cafe stops - 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.

WHAT TO RIDE:  For the Ladies Rides, we must specify that you ride a well-maintained road bike.  Mountain bikes are generally unable to be ridden at the speeds the rides travel at.  

WEATHER:  The rides can take place in the early part of the year, so 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.

WHERE TO DIRECT QUERIES: Feel free to contact Jayne at if you have any questions.

Some of our rides start at Crathorne.  Here is a map of where that meeting place is.  

We would love to see you there!
