Outdoor activities to resume

With the easing of certain restrictions regarding outdoor activities and people meeting outdoors some of our groups are keen to get going and meet up with other members.
Whilst many of our members have been out and about, either solo or in pairs, on an informal basis as friends, the coming months will give us the opportunity to resume official u3a outdoor activities as near as possible to normal as the current pandemic permits.
From March 29th people will be permitted to engage in recreation and outdoor activity provided the Rule of 6 is observed.  Our Golf and Bowls Groups will meet up at this time as will the Day Riders and In-betweeners Cycling Groups together with Nordic Walking ( Rule of 6 ).
Other Outdoor Activity groups such as The Breakaway Cyclists, Sunday Strollers and Walk a Mile or Two will officially resume in April.

Ainsdale circuit

The Inbetweeners ( longer ride Pedal Pushers) had a great 24 mile circuit out to Ainsdale today. Starting out for Robins Island we took the country roads through Lydiate and Aughton before heading out across the moss to Plex Lane and on to the Coastal road. Stopping off at Mecycle bike workshop for a coffee. We retraced the route back across the moss as far as the Ship Inn, then cycled through Haskayne, cut across country past Farmer Teds, and back into Lydiate. A couple of us broke off here and came back along the Cheshire Lines, whilst the others carried on to Bells Lane and home at that end of Maghull. A lovely ride led by Trevor, without the usual fierce headwind and some sunshine for a change. Coastal ride planned for next week, when we are pleased to welcome a new U3A member to our group.
