Why join Birdwell Wheelers ?

Can't get motivated to go to the gym ?
It is known that moderate cycling at approx one hour can burn off nearly 300 calories.
The daily recommended calorie intake for women is 1940 and for men 2550.
If you record a negative calorie balance of 500 calories per day you will lose 1lb a week.
Cycling could be the answer !
I can't get motivated, joining a club is not just about racing. There are a variety of different cycling disciplines:
Riding to various control points, a bit like a treasure hunt but a great way to see the countryside.
A ride set on a challenging route.
When the Tour de France came to Britain a sportive was ridden on one of the tour stage routes.
The Sunday Club Run
A social ride with cafe stops rode at a slow pace.
The Chain Gang
Usually a training ride for racing cyclists.
As it says on the label.
Circuit racing at the velodrome, scary but exhilarating.
