Hi

I recently joined Birmingham Cyclist but I don’t seem to find many social rides
through the site.

So…….I’m contacting as many members as I can just to see if I/we can set up a few
Rides locally.

Is this something that might be of interest to you?

Initially I may organize a meet in a bar in town so everyone can put a few names to faces and gauge what the interest is.

For my part, I really enjoy the fun of cycling and do 50-60 miles per week.

I’m by no means a hardcore cyclist!!

Hope to hear from you soon

Richard Smith
