The forecast looks pretty good this Wednesday. So, if you’re suffering from a bit of cabin fever following a couple of stormy weekends, why not put your lights on charge and come along for a midweek ride? Don’t worry if you haven’t been out for a while, it’s a nice easy route this week.

Sunday Club Ride: 23rd February 2020

With just a week to go before the end of the meteorological winter, opportunities to bag some “summer smile” giving “winter miles” are fast running out. If your winter mile count isn’t where you’d like it to be, take action now. Dig out your gloves and overboots, and join us for this Sundays ride out to Farrington Gurney. I can’t promise you a named storm – but we should be good for a bit of ordinary drizzle. See you outside Priory at 09:00.

Weekend 15/16th February 2020

With the weather warnings currently in place, there are currently no club rides planned this weekend.

If any club members are intending to go out and would like to propose a route for posting, please contact the Secretary.

If the situation changes/improves, a route may be posted nearer the weekend.

Wednesday Evening Ride: 12th February 2020

Looks like this Wednesday will be the calm between two storms. So, why not take advantage of this window of opportunity, and join us for a midweek ride.

This week’s route is an old club favourite, the “Rob Special”. It’s pretty flat, but you can make it flatter still by dodging the Brent Knoll climb ( carry on around the knoll and meet the ride coming back ) and the toll road.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 5th February 2020

Once again conditions are looking pretty good for the Wednesday ride. Dry and virtually windless, say the Beeb. Add in a couple of good drying days before hand, and you've got yourself all the ingredients for a nice ride around. So, why not get those lights on charge and treat yourself to a midweek ride.

Start time 18:00 outside Priory School

Although the weather forecast is looking dodgy; high winds and potential rain, here is a possible route for this Saturday morning's ride.

I've included a detour to avoid the roadworks by the golf course.
