Join us on gentle group bike rides for women. This supportive group is a great way to meet new people, build your confidence on a bike and develop new skills.
You will also enjoy the benefits of being out in the fresh air, with fabulous views to nourish you. It is a great way to get your body moving, and to improve your physical fitness. Most importantly, it's also sociable and fun.
These rides are designed as a gentle re-introduction to cycling for those who haven't been on a bike for years. They take place on purpose built, graded tracks at Haldon forest, so there’s no need to worry about traffic. There’s a café on site and we generally stop for a coffee or tea after the ride.
Your leader is Cathy Debenham, a cycling enthusiast and a qualified British Cycling Mountain Bike Leader.
If you haven't got a bike then you can hire one from Forest Cycle Hire at the Haldon Forest site to get started. Ideally you will have a mountain bike, but a hybrid is OK on the beginners trails. As you progress, we can recommend places to buy new or second hand bikes.
