May’s Cycle Ride for All

May 14, 2015

GET on your bike this month and join in a free cycle ride around Lichfield.

The third group cycle ride in the series of seven will pedal off on a nine-mile ‘Tour de Lichfield’ on Sunday 31 May 2015.

All the rides are graded from one to five for difficulty, with five being the most challenging. This ride has been graded a level 2 and 3, which means it’s suitable for all although beginners could struggle.

Debby Whiting, from Freedom Cycles, said: “We hope plenty of people will join us for our third ride in the series. We do a quick safety check of all the bikes before setting off, to make sure they are roadworthy. We also recommend that safety helmets are worn and that you bring a packed lunch and a drink, although we do have a café stop on most rides.”

Anyone who wants to join the May’s cycle ride should turn up with their bikes at Freedom Cycles in Lichfield Bus Station on Sunday 31 May at 10am. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
