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 2019 Report: View
The Cycling Group has remained active throughout the year. We meet every other Tuesday at 10:00am. Rides typically last around three hours, which includes a mandatory cafe stop. We ride at a gentle pace, so you won't be left behind. We don't mind if you have to walk up some of the hills. The opening of the excellent cycle path alongside the A555 Airport Link Road has provided a quick and easy way for us to escape the urban sprawl and head out into the surrounding countryside. Needless to say, we have taken full advantage of this. Although our rides normally start from Bramhall, we have been experimenting with rides from Wilmslow and Ashley, using cars to get to the start. This has proved to be popular and has allowed us to go as far afield as Arley Hall and Jodrell Bank. I hope to expand on this idea in the future.
