This week, we will take you a little further afield, and time to up our challenge by taking on a couple of small hills, but we also some lovely down sections. We head out through Cranfield on to Marstaine Mortaine, with a different coffee stop this week, the Marstaine Mortaine Forest Café. Then home via Brogborough and Aspley Guise.
A lovely route with plenty of variety. In total we do around 25 miles and once again we take it steady and go at the pace of the group - no one ever gets left behind. BCG welcomes both female and male cyclists, and has a mix of women and men across all our cycling categories and we aim for a mix on this programme as well.
The programme is not just about the ride, but supporting you getting into cycling, so if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact Ann via Meetup messenger.
