Hi all,

I'm fairly new (this year) to cycling, but am very keen. I bought a second hand road bike early in the summer and have been out on it non-stop ever since. I'm getting a little bit tired of cycling on my own now, and with the dark nights and cold weather drawing ever nearer, Im looking for someone to keep me motivated.

I've been out once or twice with some friends who have travelled up and brought their bikes with them, and have been out with a few others locally but I'm looking for a regular riding buddy/s.

Can you help? Ideally someone from Seaham or Sunderland would be the easiest, but to be honest, I'd just like some company.

Tony

I am interested in whether or not a cycling club has been established. If not then perhaps it is because no one has offered to co-ordinate such a group. If others wish to I am happy to take on the task. I am not a competive cyclist, my bike doesn't arrive until the weekend, but I am keen. Kitty.1901@hotmail.co.uk

Hi Tony, I noticed that you would like a cycling group started up for company, I am also a cyclist, and I know what it is like when you don't know any body or routes! So I take cyclists out, we cover routes to herrington, stanley, seaham, hendon coast and many more! Our smallest ride will be 10 miles and our biggest will be about 60 miles in the summer!
We meet up on Silksworth ski slope car park at 3PM.
Interested? e-mail me on robthesnake@hotmail.co.uk
There is also a wearside family cycle group aswell!
hope to hear from you seen!
Happy cycling!

Check out the website www.sunderlandbikeclub.com its still got parts under construction and more parts to come in the future and is completely free.

Thanks

Hi, I'm also new to cycling and live in Seaham. I've just bought a Mountain Bike and am looking for a suitable cycling club to join. I'm just a novice and not hugely fit but am working on it. I would love to meet likeminded cycling buddies to go out for rides with. I am a shift worker so am able to go out both weekdays and weekends.

The Wearside family cycle Group (WFCG) meets at the Silksworth Ski Slope every 2 weeks from 9:15am with the aim to start the ride at 9:30am.
We are a group of cyclists that cater for all abilities and have cyclists from all areas as far afield as Hartlepool,Durham, Bellingham.
We cycle at a leisurely pace and regroup if the ride "strings" out. We try and stop for a refreshment break part way through the ride. All rides are circular starting and finsihing at the ski slope.

The ride list can be accessed from my website www.cycle-routes.org/wearsiderangers or search for Wearside Rangers for further information

Regards
Dave Willcock (Wearside)
