Forest cycling trip for women

John Freeman
A women only mountain bike trip to Grizedale Forest is being organised by Lancaster City Council’s Cycling Demonstration Town team.

Spaces on the ‘Introduction to Mountain Biking’ courses are limited: the course costs £20 and this includes return transport from Morecambe Town Hall, mountain bike hire and tuition.

There are two opportunities to take part, with trips taking place on Saturday 1 May 9am - 3pm (approx) and Friday 28 May 12.30pm - 6pm (approx)

The courses proved very popular last year and were highly recommended. "I would strongly encourage anyone to go on the Women on Wheels taster mountain biking course with Greg and Scott from Lancaster City Council," said one participant.

"Being a keen commuter cyclist I have wanted to try this for quite some time but at 60 years of age thought I might be a bit over the hill for this kind of activity. I tried it and it was absolutely fantastic - we had a brilliant day out in Gisburn Forest and I am really keen to have another go."
