Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.

    Miriam Porter Hi
    I am lucky enough to live in Cockermouth in the Lake District, so have easy access to the most amazing scenery to ride in. I enjoy the challenge of having big hills to tackle, although we have access to plenty of flat bits too out towards the coast which is 7 miles away

    I'm into lots of different types of biking. I've ridden since I was big enough to get on a trike as a kid! I've toured a lot in hostels and camping - that was my first passion, and I did a big overseas trip.

    I got into triathlon for a while, but now just enjoy using the road bike for fun. I have done some sportives - the pic is me crawling up the 1 in 4 bit of Newlands pass in the Keswick sportive.

    I also have done a bit of mountain biking, around various areas of wales, the lakes. I tend to ride out in the countryside, and not at trail centes. Recently though I have enjoyed the road bike so much, the mtb bike is feeling a bit neglected!

    I am also qualified as a bike mechanic and put together both my touring bike and the road bike from made to measure frames and all the components from scratch. I have saved the cost of the course hundreds of times over with very rarely needing to use a bike shop!! It's helpful though that a pal of mine from when I worked in a bike shop now runs the local shop.

    I'm looking forward to introducing new people to cycling. I also hope to encourage those who have ridden before and want to try something more challenging, in a supportive environment to do so

    Wendy Thomas I started to cycle in 2007 to allow myself some "me" time. I found cycling to be a cheap, healthy, low impact on the bodyjoints sport that allowed me to escape from the daily grind of being a part time worker and a full time mum!! Cycling is a sport you can do on your own or in a group but I've found through experience that riding in a small group, to start with, gives you the confidence to progress in which ever direction the individual desires. Basically cycling can be as easy or as hard as you want to make it. Turning up is the first and sometimes hardest step and remember no matter how silly a question might seem it will of been asked before; I know as I've asked loads!!! Cycling is fun so give yourself some "me" time. Hope to see you soon, Wendy.
