    WEEKLY RIDES group outing      womens pub ride      WEEKLY RIDES summit      Sunday ride

We have a really great bunch of riders who join us every week for some sociable cycling.  We have the hard-core gang who turn up rain or shine, the regulars who might miss a few rides here and there and then some that just make it when they can, but everyone is always welcome and it’s great to see new faces every week.  We ride all year round (yes we keep going through winter!!!) on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, Wednesday mornings and every first and third Sunday of the month. 

All rides start from the rear carpark of our Giant Kendal Store @ The Old Brewery, Wildman Street, Kendal, Cumbria LA9 6EN 

WEEKLY RIDE Summary (there will sometimes be multiple groups depending on numbers and ability)

Tuesday  6:00PM for 1.5 to 2 hrs  - Open to all, usually a couple of groups due to numbers

Wednesday 10:00AM for 2 hrs – Aimed at Seniors, but everyone is welcome, a more social, steady paced ride that quite often has a cafe stop

Wednesday 6:00PM (6.15pm set off)  - Summit Challenge for 1.5 hrs – Ride to top of Shap or Scout Scar / Brigsteer adventure, depending on the weather.  For those that love going up hills!

Thursday 6:00PM – Liv Ladies for 1.5 to 2 hrs – Women only ride at a pace that suits everyone.  No sprinting off, no huge hills and no gasping to keep up – just a proper, good old ride out with a lovely, friendly bunch

Sundays 10:00AM for 2 to 3 hrs every 1st and 3rd Sunday.  We also have a Liv Ladies group (s) on our Sunday rides.  Meeting at the same place and same time as the usual Sunday rides, but there will be a separate ride just for women.  Same as Thursday night Liv Ladies, no super speedy riding or monster hills, just a good day out on your bike - and we might even throw in a cafe stop (would be rude not to).
