Portsmouth CTC is organising a series of week-end rides for people new to group riding or who haven’t cycled for a while. They start after Easter with short ‘get to know you’ rides that include a free bike check and progress through longer distances, tackling a series of challenges along the way:
- Bronze: Havant to Portsmouth cathedral and back
- Silver: Chichester cathedral and back via the South Downs National Park
- Gold: Winchester cathedral and back
All rides are led by CTC-accredited ride leaders and supported by experienced riders. They start from The Spring Centre in Havant or Bidbury Park in Bedhampton.
The Cathedral Challenge page at…
… includes some inspirational stories from some of our members who have achieved far more than they thought possible. Cycling has the potential to be truly life-affirming.
You don’t need sponsorship and there’s no fee to join any of the rides. The only cost is one-year’s subscription to CTC if you join more than three rides.
