Velos Rides for Sunday 26th April 2015

Doug aged 18 cycling the Cambrian Wheelers 25 in May 1949Doug

Many of you who stick around in the Rose and Crown after a ride will be friends with Doug (other half to Tea Ride regular Daphne). Not everyone who knows Doug though will be aware of his cycling history. We thought we would share with you this week a photo of him riding the Cambrian Wheelers ’25’ in May 1949 – he was just 18 years old and, as you can see, had thighs to die for. Doug, we are in awe of you – this picture is simply fantastic. Thanks for sharing.


Three rides on offer this week: an early start; something more the normal and a really flat route for those allergic to mountains.

9am start, a 53 mile loop around Aylesbury

10am start, a 37 mile excursion to Eversholt

10am start, a flat 24 miler to Stoke Mandeville

As always, please bring a copy of the ride.


The Tuesday evening rides are that popular it seems that we don’t even have to mention them and people turn up all the same! So we won’t mention that we will be departing from the Pitstone Roundabout at 6:30pm Tuesday for another mid-week blast followed by rehydration at the Rose and Crown.
