Women on Wheels Tours Continue

Lancaster City Council continues its programme of guided Sunday cycle rides for women this weekend (Sunday 5th July) with a seven mile ride to Morecambe Bay.

Guided 'women only' rides have been taking place on the first Sunday of each month since March 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.

Following routes included in the council's Cycling for All Guide, these interesting and relaxing rides suitable for all levels of ability have already taken groups of women to the Sunderland Point, Crook O’Lune, Glasson Dock and Carnforth Railway Station.

This ride promises to be breathtaking and exciting, taking in the breezy shores and fantastic views of Morecambe Bay.

The guided ride is free and kicks off at 11am from the south end side of Lancaster’s Millennium Bridge. There’s no need to book - just turn up.

• For more information on these rides and other events taking place this year, pick up a copy of the council's free 'Go by Bike' Events and Rides 2009 brochure from customer service centres at Lancaster and Morecambe Town Halls or visit www.celebratingcycling.org.
