    Andrew Payne I have been taking cycling fairly seriously since 2003 and have been a member of the Maidenhead and District Cycle club since that time. During the summer months I regularly take part in time trails of 10, 25, 50 & 100miles. In addition to Skyride leading (now in my 4th year), I'm also a British Cycling level 2 coach and a Bike-ability coach working at schools getting youngsters confident to ride to school. When time allows I'm also a cycling guide for a number of charity events like London to Paris rides I really enjoy the Sky Rides as they are far more social than most of the riding I do and its good to meet people interested in the less competitive end of the cycling spectrum. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and having an enjoyable day out with good weather.
