Local Cyclist Touring Club
The chairman of the local branch of the Cyclist Touring Club says:
"We have regular cycle rides on Wednesdays and Sundays offering both
easy and moderate rides and we would welcome cyclists who are visiting
the area on holiday to ride with us. We tend to cycle the quieter roads
which visitors to the area perhaps would not know and of course cycling
with a group can offer more safety and a sharing of local information".
