Velos Rides for Sunday 29th June 2014


Sticking with our ‘three ride Sunday’ formula, our early adventure this week takes us past Cranfield Airport.

9am Start 53 Mile Route

10am Start 35 Mile Route

10am Start 25 Mile Route

As always, we meet at the Rose & Crown 10 minutes before the start time and please bring a copy of your chosen route in either digital (Garmin) or analogue (Paper) formats.

Dave Bembridge

Hot on the heels of the amazing Martin Sisley who raised over £3,000 for the Air Ambulance Service last week, Dave Bembridge is planning to ride from John O’Groats to Lands End starting on the 12th July. The knowledgeable ones amongst you will have spotted that, unlike Martin who rode ‘up’ the country to John O’Groats, Dave’s journey is essentially down hill all the way. To make up for this, Dave is adding a few miles just to make it that much tougher for him. In fact, his route includes 1,500 miles of cycling. No mean feat and all to raise money for a fantastic cause, Cancer Research.

Dave does a lot for our club – and cycling in general, so please do sponsor him if you can. He is also inviting his fellow velos to join him on the various legs – if you are interested then please have a chat with him.

The Herts Cycle Challenge

Also undertaking a challenge is Angela Hollands, who is riding the Herts Cycle Challenge on Sunday 6th July.  She would love some company if anyone fancies giving this one a go.  Starting in St Albans, there are two circular routes to choose from – 25 miles or 50 miles.  All the details, routes and the registration info can be found here on the Rennie Grove  Hospice website.
