With the sun higher in the sky, weather (generally) looking up and people thinking of getting out on their bikes, it’s our pleasure to announce the return of our Wednesday Sevens club runs.
The Wednesday Sevens (aka ‘W7s‘) are cycles suitable for pretty much anyone to take part in. If you are new to cycling, have been off the bike for a while or merely want to get out for a few miles of sociable pedalling, the W7s should suit you down to the ground.
There’s no such thing as ‘holding people back’ with the W7s. They are run at a pace to suit all in attendance. Nobody will find them beyond their capabilities. They’re certainly not races!
You don’t even have to ride a road bike to join in with the W7s; Mountain bikes, hybrids etc. are all suitable for use with Old Bleach on a Wednesday evening. Just make your bike is roadworthy (brakes working etc.) and you’ve got a cycle helmet on your noggin.
If you’re unsure about riding in a group, the W7s club run is the perfect place to learn. It doesn’t take long to pick up the little nuances which make group riding enjoyable, easier than riding alone and safe (with particular emphasis on safety).
For some, the W7s form a great bridge to go out on longer, faster cycling excursions. For others, the W7s meet all their desires and they stick purely to them. Whatever your wishes, Old Bleach will do its utmost to help you reach your personal goals. Be it gaining experience cycling in a group, road racing at high speed or anything else, we simply want our club members to be safe and happy in their cycling. Everyone who cycles has the ultimate ambition of gaining personal enjoyment from it. Our role is to help maximise that in a safe environment.
The 2015 Wednesday Sevens club runs will start up at 7pm on Wednesday the 22nd of April and depart from outside The Old Forge in John Street car park.
Don’t forget to keep an eye on our calendar for all the other upcoming club runs too. We will be starting up Thursday Evening club runs from 6-30pm on the 23rd and Tuesday Evening cycles from 6-30pm on the 28th.
