Gateway Cycling’s annual New Years’ Day Ride

Gateway Cycling’s annual New Years’ Day Ride will be going ahead again… starting the new year in the perfect way – feet on the pedals and sat in the saddle…

 Meet at 10.00 Blackshots Leisure Centre, Blackshots Lane, Grays RM16 2JU – near the steps. SATURDAY 1st January 2022

 We’ve ridden this route many times, heading out towards the RSPB centre café at Purfleet for coffee, cake and our usual jolly festive chat. It’s along dedicated cycle ways, quite flat, a slow and easy pace for families and the less experienced rider… The route will take in the Mardyke Valley and Davy Down, only if it’s not too muddy… on to Watts Wood and the Purfleet RSPB centre. Here a choice to pedal on further for a circuit along side the marsh lands accompanying the wildfowl and more. Swing back along side the historic Thames path and its inspiring watery vistas – for our deserved refreshments and natter…

 Disperse from here and homeward back to Blackshots…

 This has always been a popular and enjoyable ride so I hope you, your friends and families can join us. Make sure your bike is roadworthy, wear appropriate warm clothing, take money and a mobile phone, 16 years and under need to be with parents or guardian or a ‘responsible’ adult.

 We’re in an everchanging situation… Take your mask – and setting out with a large dose of good common sense… we’ll have Fun!

 All welcome. Cheers! 🙂

 Jon Lane.
