Now spring has finally sprung, we will be changing from our monthly Sunday Jolly to a weekly Evening Jolly (formerly known as Moonlight Rides – we decided to change the name because they will happen in the evening, be jolly and because we can’t guarantee moonlight!). We will meet every Tuesday evening from 5pm to plan a route together, based on how far and how fast we want to ride then head off around 6pm. All genders and abilities welcome and the ride will be tailored accordingly. Prepare to ride anywhere!!!
When: Every Tuesday from 7th May 2013
Time: From 5pm, for 6pm ride.
Where: The Sandbar, Grosvenor St, M1 7HL
What to bring: Friends, lights, puncture repair kit and tools, waterproofs and suncream, maps and route ideas

This Sunday (28th) Kat will be leading the last Sunday Jolly of 2013. Don’t worry, this is not the last Spokes-organised ride of 2013. As spring has FINALLY sprung we will be starting up the Moonlight rides again. These will be every Tuesday starting from 7th May. Meeting from 5pm in the Sandbar, riding at 6pm.
So until then, see you THIS Sunday from 11am at The Deaf Institute for pre-ride breakfast and route planning, departing at noon. As usual, prepare to ride anywhere!!

Hello Spoke Fans,
Yes it has been aaaaages since we posted but never fear there is plenty going on behind the scenes. The best place to keep up to date with what we are doing is on facebook but we realise that not everyone uses that so we promise to keep our blog more up to date from now on.
We have been doing our Sunday Jolly rides on the last Sunday of every month. If you fancy a nice ride with a friendly bunch then come along and join us. We meet at 11am at the Deaf Institute on Grosvenor Street for pre-ride breakfast and route planning before riding at noon. The next ride will take place on 24th March 2013.
Our lovely friends at the Circus House have still not found a new venue so we have not had a rehearsal space for a few months now. If you know of anywhere suitable, I am sure the Circus House people would love to hear from you
The big news is that we are starting to plan North West Velo Fest 2013 and we are VERY excited, so watch this space!!!
That is all for now. Happy riding
Love the Spokes x x x x

As part of our “get skilled up” mission, for the past 6 weeks The Spokes have been learning to dance. A bit of a noval idea for a so-called dance troupe! Cheeks at Sunshine Studios took us under her very street wings and aparently, we do have rhythm and we can dance! Who knew! We’ve got some fundamental moves under our belts now so next week we’re going to see how we can combine this with the little bikes.
