Sunday Club Ride 27th September 2020 ( PROVISIONAL – pending any change in COVID restrictions )

We’re hoping to do something a bit different this week - a ride over the Bridge to climb the famous “Tumble” near Abergavenny.

Start time is 09:00 from Aust ( parking just of the A403 down New Passage Road ), or 06:45 from Priory if you fancy a longer day out.

Anticipated refreshments will be an Ice-cream at the top of the tumble ( hopefully ) followed by a café stop in Abergavenny before heading for home.

Group size is limited to 6. If we’ve more on the day we’ll split in to two groups, maybe with one visiting the café before the climb.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 26/08/2020

We can’t promise you doughnuts this week, but the weather’s looking pretty good. I don’t want to alarm anyone, but you can count these evening rides ( i.e. before the clocks go back ) on your fingers and one thumb now. Be a shame to miss this one. ( maybe bring some lights for the later part of the ride )

Sunday Club Ride: 26th July 2020

A ride to Mokoko in bristol this week ( Thanks to Lucas and Duncan for the collaboration ). Aside from coffee and cake, the route includes a ride over everyone’s favourite bridge, a flyby Chew Valley Lake and just enough climbing to pass for a workout. Add in the promising weather - and what’s not to like? Social distancing rules apply - if we've got more than 6 riders we'll split into smaller groups on the road.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 11th March 2020

Not many of these dark rides left now. Your favourite sloth could count them on the toes of one foot. I think we all know what this means? ……yes, that’s right! you’re running out of time to use those fancy lights your partner bought you for Christmas. So, make a big show of getting them on charge for this Wednesday - or risk socks and “grooming products” for Christmas 2020.

The forecast looks good, so see you outside of Priory School at 18:00 ( new members welcome ).
