Ivinghoe Velos Rides for Sunday 23rd May 2021

This Sunday we have a big one on offer. The 9am route takes us to Windsor Castle on a 78 mile adventure. As the distance is beyond our usual “sprint” to the pub we will be riding at a sensible pace and will include a coffee break. Anyone who usually rides comfortably at 15mph will be fine. The route journeys through the AONB chiltern hills, then past Dorney Lake, the site of the 2012 olympic rowing, a quick wave to the Queen at Windsor and a nod to Heston at the fat Duck in Bray, before returning through Cookham and Marlow and back up through the Chilterns. We meet at 9am at Ivinghoe church https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36014336

If you are lacking in the time or energy to get to Windsor and back, we have the usual medium and short options. Please arrive before the planned start time and identify the group you are riding with, looking after all members so you complete the course as a well oiled peloton machine. Having a good knowledge of the route will help you make the correct turns during your time at the front of the group. Thanks to Dave B for putting these routes together.

10am ride to Horwood and Winslow, this 36 mile route has little by the way of climbs so should be easy for the group to keep together https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36067897

10.30am ride to Stewkley , 23 miles will less than 1,000 feet of climbing, idea for those getting back to fitness or joining group rides for the first time. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36067959

If you fancy something a bit rougher, the following Sunday (30th May) will include a mountain bike option at 9am, out to the Chess Valley and back to the pub for 1pm.

Enjoy the rides and stay safe.
