Hello. Check out the newbie ride post for this coming Saturday (in the "rides" section), I think there's still places available.

They're every month, so keep your eye on the forum. the Newbie Rides are just to assess your skill / fitness before you join the club proper. Also, keep your eye out for Non-Club Rides (NCRs) - these are open to anyone.

Thanks - I've been with the Biketreks club in Ambleside for a while but it's getting a bit much going up every week at the min!! Where do I go on the website to find the posts please, site seems a little complicated to follow at 1st!

Go to the "Rides" section, just below the "Introduction" section. There will be posts for the Newbie Rides and NCRs. There's plenty of people near to you so keep your eye out for the local rides - if there's one that take's your fancy, post up and someone will reply with details. Most of the NCRs will be local to you.

No probs. The next Newbie Ride will be February as they are monthly, but as I said there should be plenty of NCRs between now and then. If you have a decent set of lights (Hope 4, etc) this will be of use as a lot of folk ride during the evenings.

We've all got the gear, but not many of us (including myself) have got any idea what it does.:wall:
