Cycle Out Bristol announce March rides

Cycle Out Bristol is a cycling group for LGBT people and their friends for Bristol and the surrounding area, organising regular cycle rides and social events throughout the year.

Here are their rides scheduled for March ;

Sun 02 March 2pm
Women-only ride once a month. short easy ride with a stop for a drink or a bite to eat. Setting off at 2pm from Queen Square, Bristol – by the central statue, or Graze if the square is closed. Bringing you back to the starting place by 5pm. Ride leader is Rachel.

Sun 09 March 10am
Take a longer ride to the Green Belt. Bring food. Departing Queen Square, Bristol at 10am. Ride leader is Graham/Michael

Wed. 12 March 7pm – NB change of date
Prepare for Spring. Improve your technique – look after your bicycle
Learn about the gears, the chain and the brakes from Gary. Practise making adjustments on your own bicycle. Learn the best cleaning method. If your bike has a flat tyre bring it and fix it with help. If you have a problem with your brakes, buy a pair of replacement brake blocks and get help fitting them during the session (just make sure you buy identical to those on the bike already). Get some friendly instruction in a sociable setting with plenty tools and a nice bike stand. The session is in the workshop upstairs at Roll for the Soul, Quay Street, Bristol. It costs £3 and runs from 7pm to 9pm. Food is available in the ground floor café. Come straight from work and dine before the workshop from 6pm. This is a good chance to get ready for Spring and to prepare for the Wednesday evening rides which start on 2nd April. There’s no need to book but as it would be good to have some idea how many people to expect, an e-mail confirmation would be handy.
