Portsmouth CTC are organising a series of week-end rides for people new to group riding or who haven’t cycled for a while. They start after Easter with short ‘get to know you’ rides that include a free bike check and progress through longer distances, tackling a series of challenges along the way:
- Bronze: Havant to Portsmouth cathedral and back
- Silver: Chichester cathedral and back via the South Downs National Park
- Gold: Winchester cathedral and back
All rides are led by CTC-accredited ride leaders and supported by experienced riders. They start from The Spring Centre in Havant or Bidbury Park in Bedhampton.
The Cathedral Challenge page provides more information including some inspirational stories from some of our members who have achieved far more on a bike than they thought possible.
There’s no need for sponsorship, and there’s no fee to join any of the rides. The only cost is one-year’s subscription to CTC if people join more than three rides.
The event is inspired by Bristol CTC’s very successful ‘Get Gorge-ous’ rides.
