Home of the Chester Fabulous Ladies cycling club. Meet one Saturday a month for easy cycle ride - usually back by lunch! We will always wait for riders, and usually have a few different levels of ride available.
Photos and views are usually my own, but photos taken by others are sometimes shared with their permission.
I was approached a wee while back by a publication, looking for ladies over 50 to be interviewed for an insurance magazine. Not being old enough myself (!), I asked the ladies, and Collette volunteered.
Posted on facebook, 3rd May:
When I responded to a request,sent to the Fab Ladies Cycling Group, for a lady in her mid-fifties to answer some questions for a magazine article, I didn't envisage having to take part in a 'photo shoot' (their terminology not mine!) at 8.00am on a Saturday morning. And no it wasn't a Calendar Girls style session ! I took Mick with me as my PR Manager - haha, but he was more interested in the equipment - pardon mrs???
and today an email came from Collette:
the magazine article. The write up isn't exactly what I said but I suppose they
can practise artistic licence as journalists
is a link to the Fab Ladies site so they kept that part of the bargain.
I am not sure where Collette goes following our rides to enjoy a glass of wine - but there is an idea!
I have lived in Chester all my life, and cycled here for over 25 years. It goes someway to explaining how I know my way locally without referring to a map all the time, a fact which amazes my ladies. There is a wealth of accessible lanes, tracks and routes within 10 miles of Chester, easily reached in a mornings ride. Not to mention more cafe's than you can shake a bicycle pump at! That is what the fabulous ladies is all about!
Oh, and cake!
