Have a go at cycling

Retford and District Wheelers Cycling Club will host an introductory ride for anyone wanting to have a go at club cycling, this Sunday.

The destination of the outing will be decided on the morning, dependant on the experience of the new riders.

But the distance is expected to be around 20 miles, with a refreshment stop at the halfway point.

Riders under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The club meets in Retford Market Square at 9am.

Last weekend the Wheelers rode to Elsecar Heritage Centre, and a group of 14 riders took part.

It was a testing ride of climbs and descents on a route via Styrrup, Stainton, Ravenfield, Swinton and Wentworth.

The return journey was by way of Hooton Roberts, Ravenfield, Bramley, Laughton, Firbeck and Blyth.

The total distance travelled was around 58 miles.
