Ride – Sunday 29th August 2010

Well done !

A tremendous turn out last week with some 18 intrepid riders turning out and great to see some more new faces! Thanks also for the really positive feedback on the rides and whilst I neither got stung or fell off, it is noted that we had one wasp sting and one fall off in the group (both with no long lasting effects).

(i)Vinghoe Velo is everybody’s ‘club’ and as much input to Gary, Jose and myself is needed.

Dave Bembridge has proposed a shorter ride (say 7 miles) perhaps every other Saturday to enable us to widen the appeal of cycling to those who may feel intimidated by a 15 mile ride, we would create a route and have someone lead it and comments and feedback on this would be appreciated, certainly Dave and I have volunteered to lead them if there is a call for them.

Finally several people have asked about the cycling jerseys the site I use is have a look if nothing else the logos make you smile, although be wary of the sizing! Will Hollands is wearing the ‘club’ shirt on Sunday and for guidance that is an XL, whilst I will be sporting my rather bright jersey which has a few more Xs before the L!!

Short Ride – 16 miles

Long Ride – 27 miles

Look forward to seeing you all,


Ride – Sunday 22nd August 2010

Hi all!

In Gary’s absence please find attached the rides for this week, meeting at 10.00 am as normal, you will note that I have avoided water this time!!

The last 3 weeks we have had 15 riders each Sunday and it would be good if, despite Gary and the Beezers being on holidays we could achieve a similar number, so PLEASE try and introduce a friend to the (I)Vinghoe Veloes and drag them along with you. Another new and even brighter (better fitting too!) cycling jersey will be on display 🙂 modeled by yours truly and in the hope it will scare off the wasps!

Remember we have set this club up to be a social ‘low key’ ride and it would be good if everyone could take their turn to accompany and encourage the ‘slower’ riders and more importantly that we all take responsibility for our fellow riders safety! The last couple of weeks we have managed to get ‘lost’ on a few occasions so it would be good if we could all take 10 mins to study the routes! Sorry to those of you that have those thingamejigs I cannot work out how to download the GPS co-ordinates for the rides 🙁

WE do not have any greater right over the road than those pesky motorists so lest extend to them the courtesy we expect from them.

Short Route – 14 miles

Long Route – 23 miles

Hope to see you all on Sunday

Ride – Sunday 15th August 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Please find below the rides for this Sunday. As usual there is one long and one shorter route. If you take a look at the maps there is a URL, which will if you tap into your machines, allow those of you with GPS to down load the co-ordinates to your diddly watsits.

This will be my last ride until September as I shall be on my Hols, so Andrew and Jose have volunteered to take the handlebars after this Sunday. If you have any rides during this time that you would like to do, please let them know.

Short Ride – 16 miles

Long Ride – 22 miles



Ride – Sunday 8th August 2010

Hi Folks

Apologies for the late notice, but for your delectation and delight we have two rides. Having completed the mighty hastoe last weekend I have come up with a less challenging route for this week, however, those of you astute map followers will notice that we are leaving the village to climb up to the beacon, this is the only significant hill on both routes.

Usual meeting time of 10am, everyone welcome.

short route – 15 miles

long route – 21 miles

See you Sunday!
