As our next ladies ride coincides with Cardiff Bike Week (, we are putting on something a bit special.

From 1030-1230, Liz Webb will coach a session at Maindy Track. This will be suitable for all levels. Whilst a road bike will make things a bit easier for you, it’s not an essential requirement ( unlike a helmet, which is!)

Amongst other things, the session will boost your confidence riding in a group and develop your general skills. The session will cost £3 per rider. We’ll try to provide some basic refreshments, too. (Home baked cakes are always a welcome contribution….)

From 1300-1430, we’ll have a maintenance session at Kappucino on Cathays Terrace. This will be an informal session, over lunch, led by experienced club members. The aim will be to help you out with some basics: you’ll learn about pre and post ride checks, and how to fix a puncture, and essential tools to have in yout ride kit, and at home.

Kappucino will be offering 10% off to those who participate.

Spot prizes, donated by our sponsors Muddybums will be handed out for various things throughout the day!

Those with any energy left or who’ve had a boost from too many of the taster mini muffins and flapjacks may then want to go on a short road ride.

If not, you can also join the mixed beginners’ club ride on Sunday. That will leave Maindy at 0930.

Members and non-members welcome. I hope to see lots of you there.
