First N E Group Cycle Ride

9 Apr 2018 | North East, Cycling Groups

GOC North East – Cycle EventOn Sunday 25th March we had the first of what we hope will be a programme of cycle rides organised by GOC North East Group. For our first ride three members met at the Bike Hub on Newcastle Quayside to ride to Prudhoe and back via Ovingham, an easy ride of about 30 miles.

The weather was kind to us after the harsh winter weather of the previous week. We enjoyed sunshine to take the edge off the crisp north east chill. Our route took us along part of Hadrian’s Way, National Cycle Network 72 which goes coast to coast from Tynemouth on the east coast to Bowness in the west....

Autumn Walking and Cycling week in Mallorca

12 Nov 2017 | Cycling Group

Autumn Walking and Cycling Week in Mallorca, 8th to 16th October

26 Oct 2016 | London, Cycling, Events Abroad Groups

This was the 18th year for the Mallorca cycling week and the first to be held in the autumn. This had freed up the Spring and we went to Italy, to Riccione on the Adriatic coast, near Rimini for a joint walking and cycling week. For Mallorca this year we had also managed to tempt a number of walking members as well, please see their own report below.

It may have been October but Mallorca was hot. We had some totally sunny days but with cloud on others, plus a little rain, most of which was overnight. There was always a background warmth, so the warm clothes were never used....
