Hello everybody, it’s been a while! We are now in a position to start up riding in groups of up to six again! We will be advertising rides on Tuesday evenings and Sundays with official posts, ad-hoc rides can as usual be planned amounst group members via the facebook “rear hub” page.
This Tuesday is not only the first chance of riding in a group, it’s also the first evening with enough light to get a decent ride in starting at 6.30pm. We aim to get done before darkness, but from a safety point of view lights are recommended. Please arrive early to be ready to ride at 6.30pm
There are two planned routes to tackle this Tuesday a 14 mile route via Long Marston and Tring Station, and a 16 mile route taking in Toms Hill before crossing Ashridge and back through Slapton. The 16 mile route will start from the playing ground side of the roundabout in Pitstone. The 14 mile route will start from the bus stop. We plan to meet away from the usual corner as this often creates a bottleneck for people walking through. If we have more than six riders per group we will need to quickly split into pace groups and spread out to clearly define the groups. No one will get left behind so please feel free to join which ever route you fancy. We are starting steadily as we get back together!

As we are starting back looking forward to a new year of cycling together, it would be great to get some ideas and opinions so we can plan to enjoy all aspects of the group. Please take some time to complete this survey. We will communicate the survey results and try to ensure our planning and organizing reflects the wants and needs of as many people as possible!
