First up is a long training ride organised by Mr Beezer and Mr Mordey … and it’s a toughie. A 70 mile round trip to Benson taking on around 3,700 ft of climbing with a target average speed of 15 mph. We plan to leave from the Rose and Crown at 8am Sunday for this ride so we should be back not long after the usual time (subject to punctures).
The main 10am ride will be led by Mr Bembridge. The pace will be at the slowest rider so no one gets left behind.
The Slapton Wheeler on 30th June
Our friends from the Slapton Wheelers have organised a very local sportive that takes place on the 30th June 2013. There are three routes to chose from – 26 miles, 54 miles and an eye watering 101 miles. A few our our group have already signed up so if you fancy giving it a go, you are likely to have some company. The sign up forms are over on their “Ride the Horns” webpage.
Road Ride This Tuesday Evening
Continuing on our quest to make best use of the light evenings, we will be venturing out on the road again this Tuesday. The meeting point is the Pitstone Village Roundabout at 7pm. We have an invite from the Slapton Wheelers to stop by the Carpenters Arms for post-ride rehydration so we might need to bring lights for the way home.
