The final two Dr Bike Surgeries run by Cycle Seahaven will be at Seaford on Saturday 6th and Peacehaven on Saturday 20th October.
Ethos:- Bikes out of sheds and back into safe use
What we are:-
‘Dr Bike’ is a group of cycle enthusiasts from Cycle Seahaven who want to help local people to use their bikes more. If you are not pedalling because of dodgy brakes, stiff gears, rattles, creaks or soft tyres, then bring your poorly cycle to the Cycle Seahaven Dr Bike surgery.
We are all passionate cyclists, some even have maintenance qualifications, but we will give your bike a safety check and try our hardest to get your cycle fixed, so you get back in the saddle!
What we are not :-
Cycle Seahaven Dr Bike Activities 2018 from March to October
Seaford Council Offices / Police Station Forecourt first Saturday of the month from 10:00 – 12:15
Big Park Peacehaven third Saturday of the month from 10:00 – 12:15
Any queries or offers of help to Dr Bike via our Contact page
Some improvements have been made to the ride descriptions of Touring rides on the Rides Calendar which, hopefully, members will find useful when considering going on any of our rides.
The ride description will now include six side-headings:
- REFRESHMENT STOPS
- RIDE LEADER
‘Route’ has always included a hyperlink to the plotted route on RWGPS (Ride With GPS). This hyperlink will now be a short filename in upper case which will be the main destination of the ride, eg BLACKBOYS E1.
Therefore, if you download the route onto your GPS cycle computer, you should easily find the route in your saved ‘Courses’; Garmin devices do not like long filenames. Don’t worry about the last two characters of the filename such as E1 as they’re just a route identity suffix.
When you look at the plotted route on RWGPS you’ll see more information about the ride, both on the map and in the column on the right-hand side. Google Streetview is available on RWGPS maps so you can do a virtual tour of the route or take a look at any parts of the route that may be unknown to you.
Our touring rides aren’t just about the cycling; the refreshment stops are a key part of our rides. Therefore, if a refreshment stop has a website, there will now be a hyperlink to it.
Also, more details will be added to our list of Refreshment Stops including Trip Advisor ratings. There will be more information in a post later this month.
TIP To view a RWGPS map on a tablet it’s probably best to view it in landscape otherwise you may only get a description and cue sheet if viewed in portrait.
Some of you will have noticed that there is a new ride featuring on the calendar this Sunday, the ride entitled “Funday Ride” which will be led by Roy Francomb.
The new ride is aimed to run at a level just below our Sunday Improvers ride. The Improvers group has progressed and raised the bar as to the mileage and terrain we cover, leaving a gap for a slightly lower grade ride on a Sunday. Roy has kindly offered to run the “Funday” ride. This ride will be for those who want a slightly less challenging MTB with a coffee and cake stop on a Sunday.
Where & when possible we will try to arrange for the Funday & Improvers ride to meet up for Coffee & Cake at some point on the ride or at the end of the ride.
So if you fancy getting out on a Funday ride you can contact Roy via our ride leaders contact page.
