Ards Cycling Club will be starting a Women’s Comber Greenway run on September 5th at 9.30 AM to encourage more female members to the club. The run is designed as a confidence builder for those relatively new to cycling and who want to develop their skills and enjoy a Saturday morning social spin in good company. Starting from the Square in Comber and travelling along the Comber Greenway, the run will involve a coffee stop and then return along the same route to Comber. Members of the group can agree the distance to be covered with the club guides before setting off. This should make it manageable for everyone. The run will not involve any steep climbs, and will be taken at a leisurely pace, so that nobody gets left behind. The plan is to do the run regularly on a Saturday morning, depending on demand, and is open to anybody aged 16 and over. A ‘road’ bike is not essential, though a bike in good working order is required. Expert guidance and support will be on hand. Bring a helmet, spare tube, in the unlikely event of a puncture, and some water or an energy drink to keep you going. Participants should be aware that the route may involve travel along cycle lanes on public roads, though traffic volumes on the route chosen are anticipated to be low at that time of day.
