Ivinghoe Velos Rides Tuesday 27th April 2021

Three routes to choose from for these mid-week group rides, focusing on flat and fast, with a little kick at the finish! We meet at the round about in Pitstone and ride from 6.30pm. While staying safe and courteous to other road users the aim of the game is to work as a team to get round the route as quickly as the team can manage. Current guidelines require us to ride in groups of six, so we will split into teams as riders arrive. We will finish back at the Pitstone roundabout for a debrief!

CHAIN BREAKER A: To Ivinghoe, through Slapton, turn left, up to the Rye, through Tottenhoe, then Eaton Bray, back into Slapton, through Ivinghoe Aston to the one climb of the ride before turning for home on the Beacon road https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35824976 22 miles.

CHAIN BREAKER B: Ivinghoe, Slapton, The Rye, Tottenhoe, Eaton Bray, Slapton, Cheddington https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35824995 20 miles

Some diary dates for you…… In May (possibly 23rd?) there will be a longer Sunday ride with a coffee stop down to do a lap or two of Dorney Lake. The ride will be a 9am start and will take in 75 miles of Chiltern countryside, there will be no prescribed pace, everyone welcome! On 18th July several Velos have signed up for the Hemel Hillbuster which starts from Gadebridge Park, worth a look for a nice summer charity challenge https://www.dens.org.uk/event/hemel-hillbuster/ and in August to help celebrate our master route planner Dave Bembridge’s birthday we will be running a set of charity rides, hopefully, god willing, from the Rose and Crown!
