Saturday Club Ride : 1st Feb 2020

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.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 29th January 2020

The weather’s looking decent for Wednesday evening once again. “Low cloud with a gentle breeze” and only a “low chance of precipitation” according to the BBC. It's another “easy pedalling” route this week, to see January out.

****Start time this week, by popular request, is back to 18:00 - see you outside Priory School*****

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 22nd January 2020

Last week the cycling Gods granted us good weather for the Wednesday ride. This week, following the sacrifice of a number of small animals, it looks like they’re smiling on us again.

Dry, 8 degrees and just 7 mph of wind - January riding seldom gets better.
Last weeks flat route tempted people out, so I thought I’d try the same trick this week with a figure of eight Yatton route.

A 19:00 start again this week to give people time to get home and miss the commute traffic.

Sunday Club Ride : 19th January 2020

By popular request, and because the weather looks good, here is the route for Sunday. Café stop at Wapping Wharf.

The route hopefully avoids much use of potentially muddy tracks, although with the recent weather there is always the possibility of a surprise CX section.

Meet up at 9am, outside Priory School.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 15th January 2020

Wednesday evening is currently looking relatively warm, dry and not too windy. So I thought we’d try this easy peddling route ( which should avoided too much crap and standing water ) and see who we can tempt out.

A 19:00 start once more to miss the tail end of the commute traffic and give everyone time to get sorted. See you outside Priory School.
