Velos Rides for Sunday 18th May 2014

Phew, what a scorcher !

The forecast is fantastic for this Sunday so we have a bonus early morning ride planed. It starts at 8am and is one we have ridden before – “The Benson Finger” routed by Mr Andy “#Mountain” Beezer. You can expect a bevy of tough climbs in the first half and a fast flat route home. Hydration will be important so we plan to stop at a corner shop at the halfway mark for refuelling. If you are going on our Alps trip, or riding the Chiltern 100 then this will be an ideal training ride.

8am Start – The Benson Finger (71 miles)

10am Start – Flat Short Route (22 miles)

10am Start – Mid-Sized Route (34 miles)

Basin to Bar Cycle Ride – 1st June
