Let's Ride are FREE small, weekly community bike rides that give you a chance to get out and explore your local area. They're led by a British Cycling trained ride leader who is on hand to provide support and give you a few tips on how to improve your cycling, whatever your age or ability.
Rides vary in levels, from beginners to more experienced cyclists, so you can pick a level to suit your skills and enjoyment. Whatever level you choose, you'll be riding on safe routes, with your ride leaders. And if you haven't dusted off your bike for a while, they'll happily check it over for you.
