Women on Wheels ride around the city coast and countryside

wow09_sml.jpgA Women on Wheels (WoW) cycle ride takes place on Sunday 4th April -- and whether you are beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome. You can even hire a bike if you don’t have your own.

This is a chance to join Lancaster City Council’s cycling team on an 11-mile 'city coast and countryside' ride, an easy bike tour of Lancaster, Morecambe and Hest Bank, which organisers say will mainly avoiding the traffic and use a mixture of cycle tracks, roads and the canal towpath.

The aim of the rides is to encourage women who might not have the confidence they need to cycle on their own, to get out and about with other like minded ladies.

Riders should meet at 11am at the Millennium Bridge, Lancaster.

If you don’t own a bike but would like to loan one for the ride, please contact Lancaster City Council’s Celebrating Cycling team on 01524 582392 or by email at celebratingcycling@lancaster.gov.uk at least a few days in advance of the ride.

• If you are feeling inspired to take part, there's a WoW ride on the first Sunday of every month until December. Following routes included in the Cycling for All Guide, these interesting and relaxing rides are free of charge and suitable for varying levels of ability, so check the website www.celebratingcycling.org/wow or call 01524 582392 for details.
