Firstly, many thanks to everyone who ventured out on the ride yesterday. We enjoyed stunning weather and one of the fastest rides this year with an average speed of almost 14mph ! Spurred on by the success of the weekend ride, two mid-week rides are on offer for those who want to get in a little more practice before joining their respective Tour de France teams this weekend.
Tuesday 28th June – road bike ride
Dave “The Hill” Howe is leading a road ride departing from the Pitstone Roundabout at 7pm. There is a bit of rain forecast but so long as it is isn’t chucking it down this will be a great ride for stretching your legs and clocking up a few miles.
Thursday 30th June – mainly off-road ride in Ashridge
Our resident geek, John “Have you tried rebooting it” Hegarty, is planning on meeting a few pals for a leisurely paced ride through Ashridge. The Velos are most welcome to join them. The starting point will be Pitstone roundabout at 6:30pm (passing by Ivinghoe Library at 6:40pm and Ivinghoe Beacon car park at 7pm if you want to join at any point on the way up to Ashridge).
If you want to get a hold of Dave or John for more info, you can find them on twitter via the links below –
