Our Silver Cyclists project ran in 2011 for 5 years till 2016, it encouraged countless people 50+ to get back in the saddle. The project offered weekly guided rides, ride and mechanical training and advice on bikes. It was completely free of charge, running every week on a Friday morning. Currently, a different ride, Rural Riders, has taken it’s place on a Friday morning. This ride offers a change of scenery for those regulars from the silvers who over 5 years grew tired of the same few routes heading out form the Hub.
As for the future, we’re hopeful to restart the project again sometime in 2017.
See the video below for a great sneak preview of the rides, filmed by one of our Silvers.
