A Gentle Ride Up the Estuatry

Tuesday 29th of March 2016 - First Ladies Ride of the Year. 

Come and join our merry bunch of ladies for a chilled ride along the estuary. It's a great opportunity to chat friends old and new. We'll be heading to Topsham and then may stop off on the way home if required. There's people of different riding abilities and ages so all (women ;-) ) are welcome. We meet at 6.30pm outside Bikelands on Tuesday and aim to leave by 6.45pm to make the most of the new light evenings. Any more information then email me at rebecca@bikelands.co.uk or pop by the shop. Don't forget your lights!!  

Thursday 31st March 2016 - The First Gentle Ride of the Year

Stick it in your diary, the clocks go forward the weekend before and so the sun will be setting at around 8pm.  Meeting at Bikelands in The Strand, Exmouth from 6.45pm, we'll try to set out at 7pm.  That being the case we should get an hour in before dark descends, so bring your lights! Lets see where we get to.

 

Tuesday 11th August 2015 - Sunsets & Shooting Stars

It was tricky pinning down a Ladies Ride with so many on holiday, hosting visitors and entertaining kids on their summer holidays, but I'm so glad I did. While it was a small - but perfectly formed! - group of riders what a lovely evening we had. In fact, it was a night of Natural wonders. Hundreds of the Avocet Birds and Geese were in fine voice on the Estuary when cycling past the nature reserve near Exton, then cycling through a cloud of Bats was a first for me. But the winners were the stunning Sunset and Shooting Stars. Finished off with chat and wine in our favourite Exmouth pub The Grapevine. Not bad for a Tuesday!

To celebrate National Bike Week the boys dusted down their fixies, pub bikes, roadsters and cruisers for the first Boys Gentle Ride Up The Estuary of 2015.  Yes I know the girls have already clocked 3 or 4, but we take far better photographs!!  Stops in Lympstone, Topsham and a couple in the Bridge Inn.  This set us up for a lively ride back to Exmouth!

Thursday 17th July 2014

The second Gentle Ride was more of a stormy affair.  The temperature was about 88, jumped on ours bikes for all times sakes...yeh yeh mixed in a little DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.  Anyway storm clouds were on the horizon so we pulled the cover off the Bad Boy - Felt Torch.  With mighty long wheel base and 3 gears i wasn't too sure if I'd done the right thing.  I needn't have worried, the BB ate up the Estuary.  Got caught in brief thunderstorm, raced back to the coast and turned The Strand Gardens into Exmouths very own Velodrome.

 

 

Wednesday 18th June

The first Gentle Ride took warm gander up the Estuary last Thursday evening. We had a good turn on warm sunny evening.  A few pints, game of spoof and succession of photo opportunties.  

The rides aren't owned or organised by anyone.  We're happy to promote anyones ride in Exmouth area and will share on FB/Twitter etc

Here are a few prize snaps.  See you next time!
