5MTF gets going again

The Five Miles to Fabulous bike ride for women is an easy first step towards getting healthy, having fun and meeting new friends. If it’s been a while since you last used a bike, don’t worry, that is the reason for this ride! All you need to bring is a bike that works and yourself. (Well, and a drink and snack too perhaps, and some money for our coffee stop). The leader will outline basic skills and road craft and then lead you on a gentle five mile ride. Organised by the CTC – the national cyclists’ organisation.
That's the CTC blurb above. The 'official' five miles to fabulous season is early June - but rides can happen at any time. The local CTC group ran several rides last year. The target audience is women who have not cycled much recently, perhaps feel a bit unfit or nervous about the road. However, all female cyclists are welcome. The pace will be gentle, it is a social ride not a burn-up.
So, the first St Albans CTC 5MTF for 2009 is to one of our regular elevenses venues, the Sleapshyde Methodist Chapel coffee morning. Meet at 0930h at Faber Maunsell office in Upper Marlborough Road. Your leader is Rona Wightman, CTC and STACC member.
