Roe Valley Roadster Ride

17 Cyclists turned up at Aghanloo just a few miles outside Limavady and after a heavy shower at the start we all enjoyed a dry day on our machines. The highlight of the ride was a tea stop at the half way point were we all enjoyed  a break in an old traditional thatched Irish cottage. After the tea stop we returned to the start on small quiet roads. We had a visitor who traveled from Boston in the USA To take part in our ride and we all were pleased that Lovely Bicycle enjoyed the event.

Sperrins Lightweight Ride

The first Sperrins lightweight ride was run on Sunday 15th April 2012. The run required bicycles equipped with multi-speed freewheels. The course was undulating with quite a few hills to test the legs and combat the cold. The weather was sunny with a noticeable drop in temperature in the shade. Quiet roads were enjoyed with time to view the wild flowers in the hedgerows, neolithic standing stones, buzzards soaring in the clear sky and fine views of the Sperrin mountains. Friendships renewed and good company enjoyed.
