Cycling for fun in Richmondshire

[Thursday 03 March 2011]

A new group promoting cycling for fun is being launched in Richmond next month.

‘Cycle 4 Fun’ will encourage riders of all ages and abilities to join short weekly rides.

Outings will initially be volunteer-led, but it is hoped that as groups become more experienced they will become independently operated.

The group will be launched on April 9 at a special day of free activities at Richmond Station. Children and adults will be able to try out canoeing, archery, boot camps, led walks with the Walk for Health group, cycle rides, and activities for children with the Play Rangers and buggy fit sessions from 10am until 3pm.

It has been set up as a result of the cycle referral scheme which offered short sessions as part of a fitness of recuperation programme. People on that scheme wanted to join forces for short social rides.

It is hoped that a similar club will be set up in the Hambleton district over the coming months.
