Yay! Third time lucky! GoBike ride today, 04 February

Yes, 6 brave souls headed out in the wind and rain for an excellent 15 miles – yes, just 15 miles of a ride, but we saw lots.

We saw football grounds, old and new, cycle tracks, parks (lots of), a museum or two, cycle infrastructure and rivers. We climbed hills and speeded down them, avoided dogs and their owners, just about missed cars crossing the South City Way and, despite the weather, had a great time.

Do join us next time, or the one after. The infrastructure ride planned for January, but delayed because of ice, will now be in April. For December’s ride, cancelled because of snow, check our website Rides page and we look forward to seeing you sometime.
