If you are looking to join other cyclists for a gentle Sunday ride, perhaps you should give Chorlton wanderers a try. We are an informal group rather than an organised club. We meet once a month for a ride around the lanes of south Manchester/Cheshire of up to 35 miles, taking in a pub lunch, enjoying the scenery and general chat. If you’ve not ridden for a while or are looking for a relaxed way to find new routes and friends, then the Wanderers are for you. We meet on the second Sunday of the month in Chorlton Water Park car park, off Maitland Road, at 10am, returning at around 4pm.
You don’t need any paperwork or formality. You just need to turn up with a road worthy bike, a puncture repair kit and (given the Manchester weather) a water proof. Children over 15 are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Given the mileage, younger children can join if on trailer bikes or baby seats.
The Chorlton Wanderers rides replace the Dawdling Doctors rides that were run by the Bicycle Doctor shop in Rusholme.
