Brampton social rides in October

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Hello All
Apologies for the long silence and the lack of bike rides over the summer.Various events have conspired against us this year but we hope to make a dramatic comeback and most of all hope that you can join us on some of our rides.
We’ve put together a new schedule which is attached, and as before we are holding rides on the first and third Sunday of the month the first Sunday being an easy/medium family ride and the third Sunday a more challenging, partially off road ride.
We are having a grand re-launch of the Bike Club on the 2nd October with a very easy pedal and picnic to Talkin Tarn with an optional ride from there of about 8 miles if you are feeling energetic. If not we can sit and eat ice cream and feed the ducks!
Because we didn’t want to miss out on September completely there will also be rides on the 4th and 18th. On the 4th we have a “medium level” ride to Armathwaite and back and on the 18th a harder ride to Bewcastle via Gilsland.
For all rides we meet outside the Moot Hall in Brampton at 11.00 and bring a picnic and a drink.
Happy Cycling and really hope to see you soon!

(upcoming event)

Sunday 18th September 2011

A series of NEW Cycle Sportive Challenge Events which will be held in Cumbria in September. The Cumbria Rivers Ride includes three stunning bike routes for cyclists of ALL abilities.

A Cycle Sportive is a long distance, organised, mass participation cycling event on public roads and the Cumbria Rivers Ride will go through some of the UK’s finest scenery and cycling terrain. Starting and finishing in Keswick, the Cumbria Rivers Ride routes follow the path of the devastating effects of the 2009 Cumbrian floods from the heart of the Lake District all the way to the Irish Sea.

Sections of the routes follow the affected river courses and criss-cross over many of the bridges that were either destroyed and replaced or were badly damaged during the floods.

Cycle Carlisle 2011 Mass ride Announced

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Cycle Carlisle have confirmed that there will be another mass ride this year.

The ride will follow a similar format to previous years -with a short ride around the city ending in the city centre with various cycle-stalls and activities.

The event will on Sunday the 19th of June 2pm (meet in Devonshire walk car park from 1pm)

Here is the event on Bike week website

We are wanting to make this year’s event bigger and better than ever but to do this we really need some more help, both in organising it and volunteers to help us on the day.
If you, or anyone you know, are able to help us with any one of the following please would you let us know what you can help with. It would be much appreciated.

  • Putting up posters
  • Flyering bicycles about the event
  • Helping out at Devonshire Walk carpark with children’s banner-making or handing out Bike week goodies
  • Helping stewarding the bike ride itself (which the police require of us)
  • Making teas and coffees and serving other refreshments in the town centre for riders
  • For people who are not participating in the ride itself, tidying away stalls from Devonshire Walk carpark when ride starts
  • Helping set up stalls in the town centre.
  • Involvement in our organisation group (next meeting Monday 23 May, 6.30pm, Currock) … if you want to come to this please phone me on 07939 196441 for more details.

Thanks very much
