Aylesbury CTC Re-launch of Easy Riding
Aylesbury is a great place to cycle, surrounded by lovely countryside within easy reach. There are numerous cycle paths in and around the town centre and on new housing developments. These will eventually take you round a green corridor planned to encircle Aylesbury as part of the Garden Town plan. Also there is the excellent Greenway cycle route which provides a safe traffic free route from Aylesbury to Waddesdon Manor.
Cycling is an excellent way to exercise, it is low stress on joints and can be as easy or demanding as you want to make it. There are also a wide range of bikes available both in shops and second hand and now a good choice of electric bikes enabling anyone to enjoy cycling without having to struggle. With an electric bike, it’s almost as though hills no longer exist!
This summer Aylesbury CTC (Cycling Tourist Club) is relaunching its Newcomers and Easy Pace rides. These rides are leisure rides aimed at both new cyclists and those with a bit more experience. All rides have a stop for tea, cake and a rest! They are a great opportunity to meet other riders.
The Newcomers rides are between 15 and 20 miles long at about 8 to 10 miles an hour and the Easy Pace are about 30 miles long and around 10 to 11 miles an hour.
Easy Pace will be on the first and third Sundays of the month and Newcomers the second and fourth Sundays, starting mainly from Watermead Inn, Weston Turville shops and the Bugle Horn.
All you need is a roadworthy bike, a spare inner tube, a drink and suitable clothing including a waterproof just in case! Helmets are recommended, but not essential.
More details including times and start locations are available on our website: www.aylesburyctc.org.uk

For new riders we recommend the Newcomers rides. If you enjoy riding with us, but want to do more we also have Step Up and Moderate rides. These are aimed at faster riders.
Newcomer/Easy Pace Co-ordinators: Ben Parry and Jeremy Scothern.
