We plan to have rides roughly once a fortnight, varying the length and terrain to suit the abilities of the riders.
We are definitely not expecting Tour de France performances! The rides will be suitably paced so that no one gets left behind.

U3A Cycling Group: September 2017 News
This month the Cycling Group pedalled to Marple by way of Torkington Park and the Middlewood Way. Continuing through the Goyt valley, we paused to admire Stockport Hydro hydro-electric generating station, which the Science For All Group visited last year. We returned to Stockport on the Alan Newton Way and Trans Pennine Trail. A pleasant ride along the River Mersey brought us to Cheadle where we called in for coffee, scones and bacon sandwiches.
Luckily the weather was very kind to us - no rain!
New members are always welcome. Rides are every two weeks either on Tuesday or Thursday. This last ride was quite long but we do shorter ones as well. They are quite leisurely, so no-one gets left behind. There is always the lure of a cafe stop to spur you on!
December 2018 Report: View
The Cycling Group has been active throughout the year. Thanks are due to Ian Pennie for keeping the group going in the first few months during my unavoidable absence. We meet on alternate Tuesday mornings at St. Michael's car park. Our rides are typically between 10 and 20 miles, although we have occasionally gone a bit further. They are generally on roads, but we avoid busy main roads as much as possible. I think we have now discovered just about all the back lanes and paths out of Bramhall. We have also used the Middlewood Way, the Alan Newton Way, and the Trans-Pennine Trail. Our destinations have included Didsbury, the Airport Viewing Park, Reddish Vale, Higher Poynton and Tatton Park. We always head out to a bike-friendly cafe for hot drinks, bacon butties, etc. We had the novelty this year of a ride along the A555 Airport Link Road during the open day at the end of October. The group currently comprises 12 men and 5 ladies, with 2 of our members riding electric bikes. New members are always welcome. Our rides are quite leisurely, so no-one gets left behind. There is always the lure of the cafe stop to spur you on! David Rowell
