Grace Church Groningen cycling group was started after a conversation over coffee between Sam and Derek. Being a keen cyclist, Derek wanted to know if there would be any interest in setting up a cycling group, the idea being to not only explore the surrounding countryside, but target visiting the historic churches in the area.
After Sam handed over a five volume collection of cycle routes: Groninger Kerken Op De Fiets (all in Dutch) and receiving translation help from Hilke, (Derek’s fiancée), we plotted a series of routes.
A small group set off on our first ride in March and at a length of just 32 km the ride was taken at a steady pace. It was a great success (you can see the images in the gallery, on the right) and we look forward to many more.
Cycle Ride to Midwolde – Our first outing.
For those of you who would like to come on a future ride but have no bike: there is an opportunity to rent a decent bike at nearby bicycle parking. The pace of our rides will be comfortable: don’t worry, it’s no race.
Please contact Derek for more details or to let him know you’re coming.
