Only 145 Days To Go ………

….. until Cycle Challenge 2016 (aka Kielder Kaper)!

It’s the time of year when resolutions are made but often come to nought.


Admittedly, when the wind is blowing and the rain is lashing down, motivation to get on a bike and ride can be a problem. What we can do is consider options and make plans for the (not too distant) future.
Some Ideas
  • Has anyone thought about giving up alcohol? No, I thought not.
  • Every weekend a small group of Backpedalers do a bike ride, usually on a Sunday, sometimes on a Saturday, occasionally both. We meet at 9.30 am outside the Delaval Arms or opposite the Melton Constable depending on which way we are going. Look for details on our Facebook Page:
  • Ride a local route. You may find some inspiration on our Local Routes blog page.
  • Take a look at Cullercoats Bike & Kayak Facebook Page and consider joining their Cullercoats Ride Social Group for details about organised group rides.
  • Get your bike out of the garage, clean it, inflate the tyres, check the brakes, lube the chain and cassette then get on it and ride.
