Velos News & Routes For Sunday 25th August 2019

With the bank holiday looming and the forecast good, here is a midweek post with a couple of heads-up for you.

As this weekend is a bank holiday Dave Bembridge has put together, and will lead, a longer route covering 80 miles tackling some of the Chiltern Way. This ride will start from the Rose and Crown and will be a steady ride with coffee/food stops. Please arrive by 8.30am to join this route:

We will be offering the usual route options on Sunday with a 55 mile 9am ride to Denham, designed to be completed and back to the pub by 1pm for re-hydration.

At 10am you can take part in a 40 mile Woburn ride:

Or for those short of time a 19 mile quickie:

With sunshine on the way and a long weekend ahead, if you are planning to ride on Saturday or Monday why not invite others by sharing on our Facebook rear hub.

Also on the horizon several “Ivinghoe velos” are circumnavigating the Isle of Wight, a hilly 68 mile ride planned for 22nd September. This ride is planned to be ridden as a group with a ball-park figure of 15mph average. To be flexible (if the weather is inclement) we won’t be booking ahead but we aim to be on a 9.15am ferry from Portsmouth.
