Tips for Winter Training

As our intrepid team prepare to set off on The Wild Edric, we are reminded of the need for serious winter training, but then our minds rapidly turn to the Christmas Festivities!!!

It may not be too late to get your names onto the list for the Vinghoe Velos Christmas dinner and for those already registered with our party organiser,

please send your meal choices ASAP the menu can be viewed here

Jim is also trying to ascertain numbers to see if we can get a good value return coach for those that haven’t advised they would like to take this up at a cost of £10 per person please mail the site ASAP


Starting on Saturday 5th November at 10am from outside the Rose and Crown and then weekly

The Vinghoe Velos Tea Ride will be a gentler ride than we do on Sundays, and will go at the pace of the slowest rider or wait at appropriate points. We will aim to cover between 10-15 miles (maybe a little more) according to the wishes of the riders who turn up. There should be someone to lead this ride most weeks, so maps shouldn’t be necessary. Occasionally there may not be a leader, and cyclists can use it as a meeting point to do their own ride. It is also our aim to stop for a cup of tea somewhere. The ride should be back at the pub by about 12noon (punctures permitting) for another beverage.  This ride should be suitable for anyone who hasn’t ridden a bicycle for a while, or is uncertain about trying to keep up on the Sunday rides. It is also a good extra ride if your Sunday is too busy for cycling.  All welcome.

This weeks Sunday rides as always meeting at the Rose & Crown at 0945
