Firstly a big thanks and well done to all those who tackled Sundays route. A challenging 27 miles with some big climbs. We promise that next weeks anniversary ride will be less challenging, but will be enough to work up a thirst. But for now some news on midweek rides from the Vinghoe Velos and Friends.

Tuesday road ride with Dave Howe. Leaves Pitstone roundabout at 7.00pm for a reasonably pacey ride, and knowing Dave the odd hill.

Tuesday of road leaving from Rushendon Furlong at 7.30. This is often challenging, but no one gets left behind.

Wednesday night road ride led by me from Pitstone roundabout. Route to be made up on the night, no off road!

And finally for those wanting to get their mountain bikes out, but not looking for something too challenging, John Hegarty will be heading out from Pitstone Roundabout at about 6.30 for a “softroad” ride. Lots of tracks but nothing too technical and a steady pace.

As ever all routes finishing at the R&C for replenishment.
