Saturday Club Ride : 21st December 2019

As a special treat for Christmas I thought we might extend our usual Saturday club ride down towards Westhay and "Sweets Tea Rooms" this week.

It will add an extra twelve miles onto the usual Saturday route length, but include a coffee stop at Sweets, with a complimentary mince pie with purchased drinks. We'd be aiming to get to Sweets around 10am when they open, so no point in rushing to get their early. The Met Office is promising a bonus tailwind on the return leg.

As no one told me it was a ridiculous idea on Facebook or via this page, we might as well give it a go.

Feel free to give any Christmas jersey you may have an airing. Tinsel and fairy lights encouraged, but not compulsory.

N.B. If you don't mind potentially riding back on your own and think the extra mileage and/or coffee stop eats into your day too much, there's the option of turning back at Mark for anyone not tempted by free mince pies.

Meet up, as usual, outside Priory School, at 8:30am.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 18th December 2019

There was a decent turn out  for last weeks easy route and 19:00 start. So we thought try the same formula again this week. It’s the last Wednesday Ride of the year, so why not come along and keep your legs turning on the run up to Christmas.

See you outside Priory School at 7pm.

Sunday Club Ride : 15th December 2019

Here is the proposed route for this week. Please try to bring the route with you; GPS, map etc. At this time of year, we might be a bit thin on the ground, so I'd advise being prepared. Café stop possibility at Farrington Gurney (should be plenty of room and table inside).

N.B. Please check back Saturday evening for any last minute changes.

Meet up at 9am, outside Priory School.

Saturday Club Ride: 14th December 2019

It's fair to say the forecast is rather blowy for Saturday, with gusts well over 40mph according to the met office. But if you don’t mind getting shoved around a bit, a couple of hours on a wild day can be fun! ……..No really!
See you 08:30 outside Priory School if you fancy it.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 11th December 2019

Last week we headed for the hills, so this week ( in the hope of tempting out any less confident night riders or those who haven't been out for a while ) we're keeping it flat and simple.
Once again it's a later 19:00 start to give people time to get back from work, and miss the tail end of the commute traffic.
