Dunstable Cyclists Unite!
There is an enormously large amount of people who cycle in Dunstable, many of these co-exist with nobody noticing as they get on with things like the rest of us. Then you have a few who want to make a difference. I'm one of the latter, let's do something together.
January is a time for change for all and many have bikes, do you think you could ride a few miles? I bet you could easily ride 5+ miles within a month and not notice? a few more months and 10 miles will be easy. On top of this you get a good workout, seeing beauty spots in the area and get to meet other people you'd never think of speaking to and spark off a friendship or two.
The project I'm creating is coming to Dunstable but for now I want to try a few beta test or two.
One evening we'll arrange a little meetup of people who ride or want to ride regularly. All are welcome including those who aren't as confident on two wheels, I promise you now the less confident will be looked after. (I still struggle so I promise no pressure.)
The ride date will be announced in the next two weeks.
Requirements as follows:
Helmets - Optional (let's not go into that debate here please)
Lights - Required as it'll be an evening ride. Halfords do some very basic lights for £3 or £5 with
batteries included at the moment, or Poundland sells basic lights and batteries for £3
Bike - As long as it's working and roadworthy. Considering the test ride will be a mix of both on and off road make sure the bike is up to it.
Drinks - It's a ronseal moment there!
If interested please get in touch and we'll arrange it.
