For our first silver ride, we'll do a few gentle hills. We'll practice gradual ascents in a low gear at a slow speed so you can see how using gears - and patience - will help you with steeper hills.

The distance will be similar to the bronze challenge rides. We'll be stopping for elevenses at Keydell nurseries (note they do not like people moving their chairs around) and should be back in Havant around 1 to 1.30.
About Cathedral Challenge rides
We're running a series of rides for people new to group riding or who haven't cycled for a while. They start with a short, 'get to know you' ride that includes a free bike check and progress through longer distances, tackling a series of challenges on the way:
- Bronze: Havant to Portsmouth cathedral and back
- Silver: Chichester cathedral and back
- Gold: Winchester cathedral and back
There's more detail and a registration form here.
Note that the Cathedral rides listed here (apart from the challenge rides to Portsmouth, Chichester and Winchester) are subject to change and adaptation as we learn more about the challenge riders.
