70 Mile Tourist Trial Ride, Sunday 2nd July

The 70 Mile Tourist Trial Ride takes place this Sunday, 2nd July. I'd post more information but the council events diary doesn't have any. I'll swing by the notice board outside Burtons on the way home and have a look...

Anyone done it before? I'd like to have an idea of the route before I set off.

Anyone doing it this year?

Women’s Ride West

I've been asked by Louise from DBC to publicise their women's bike ride this Sunday:

On Sunday we are holding our second Women Only Cycle Ride. The ride starts at 10.00am outside the dolphin centre and is led by women for women. The ride is scheduled to last two hours and is suitable for all riders. The aim of the ride is to get women out and about on their bikes and hopefully give those women that don't have the confidence to go on their own to get out and about with a group of like minded women. We hope to get a good turn out of women on Sunday morning and have an enjoyable ride out of town in a Westerly direction. Radio 4 has expressed an interest in the event and more generally in what is going on here in Darlington and they will be attending on Sunday to do some informal interviews with members of the ride.
