Cycling events activities and news from the Plymouth Cycling Campaign
UPCOMING RIDES IN AND AROUND PLYMOUTH
The South Hams has an active cycling culture and offers a number of led rides. Check out the rides and cycling related activities here. Everyone is welcome and the rides cater for all levels.
Keep a lookout for regular local rides here. These guided rides are great for those looking to explore the area with a guided ride. They cater for various levels of confidence, including rides exclusively for women and for beginners.
Local events are usually publicised on the Plymouth Cycling Campaign Facebook page. Once you have visited the page and requested to join you will be able to post details of your own cycling-related events and activities. You will need to be a member of Facebook, but this is simply a matter of supplying your name and email address – you can use Facebook as much or as little as you like.
The Plymouth Cycling Campaign hold occasional evening rides along the lovely Plym Valley trail to Clearbrook, meeting at the B&Q car park at Coypool. If you’d like to eat at the Skylark pub it might be a good idea to book (should be there comfortably for 7.30) or you can bring a picnic. This will be a relaxing ride for all the family, so hope to see you there. We will let you know when we plan our next ride, with info here and on our Facebook page.
Weekly(ish) rides are held by the Pedal Power social cycling group so if that’s what you are looking for see their Facebook page.
If you are on our email list we will send you up to date information on events, together with any other news relating to cycling in and around Plymouth. If you are not on the list but would like to be please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Plymouth Cycling Campaign holds regular meetings about once every two months, where we review progress on various cycling related issues, discuss how to move forward, and plan initiatives and rides to encourage people to cycle. The minutes of these meetings are here. The meetings are open to all, and everyone with an interest in cycling and sustainable transport is welcome to attend.
NEW CYCLE CLUB LAUNCHED – Woodland Wheelers is the name of the cycle club launched recently. The club was a vision of Plymouth Schools Sports Partnership to bridge the gap between beginner cyclists and the more elite clubs. The new club is open to all ages and abilities and is supported by National Trust and British Cycling in partnership with Sky. It will provide regular rides and activities in and around the Plymouth area to improve or enhance the enjoyment of cycling for all.
