    Dilys Gartside June 2015. Just returned in time for new Sky Ride season from cycle touring Tuscany with folder bike and trains - an interesting experience I can share on our rides! 2014 highlights - wild camping/ cycling from the Isles of Ork to Wight 1000 miles with co-Leader Lindsi carrying our tent stove and grub; best campsite beside Loch Ness with the biggest ensuite bath you ever saw! Having been a cycling solicitor for decades, I retrained as a National Standard Cycling Instructor and set up CycleWise to work as a freelance instructor and campaigner for cycling. I teach all ages and abilities. See my websites or
