So who said spring was here?

Another great turn out last week and another 3 ‘new’ Velos, please remember we welcome everyone and that we are about encouraging all to enjoy cycling with a heavy emphasis on the social rather than sporting side!  Highlights of last weekends rides included:

  • Sighting a large herd of deer crossing the road ahead of one group
  • Angela ‘leading out’ the short ride, thanks Angela
  • Angela overtaking a large number of us as well as a Landrover, no it wasn’t stationery and the driver looked as startled as we did, those ‘slicks’ are going to leave us all standing!

This weekend we have the opportunity of 3 different rides again

 16 miles,

22 miles (a shortened version of the 28)

28 miles

as we meander through the 3 counties of Bucks, Beds and Herts.  Come on how many people can say they cycled through 3 counties on a Sunday morning?

Looking ahead next Saturday at 2pm sees Dave B leading out from the Rose and Crown another of his ‘beginners’ rides a great opportunity to learn some road cycling skills and to get about 9 miles under your belt with a qualified cycling instructor.

A further update for MARCH 27TH – those palnning on doing  the Ian Rennie 35 mile Aylesbury ride,  are asked to submit their own entry but would be good if you entered the ‘team name’ as VINGHOE VELOS, whilst we plan to ride it at our own pace it would be good to increase the profile of the group!

We have now been offered the services of someone to design our logo and we hope to move this forward VERY soon, watch this space!
