With a drier spell of weather on the way we dare to dream that we might complete a whole ride without the rain jacket close to hand! This week in addition to our usual road options Dave H will be leading an off-road adventure, nearly 40 miles of trials, byways and quiet lanes. Anyone is welcome to join us, including any new faces who don’t do road biking, on a relaxed morning away from the traffic. So if you want a dope route, with your pimp MTB, or even a BSO come along, dab if you need to, it’s not too gnarly, no booters planned, we won’t be too shralp but hopefully it will be a sick ride. Expected finish time is 1pm
The 9am road option is a 55 mile trip through Evershot and Woburn, back via Stewkley, ending with a kicker in the back end of the route with an assent of Marlin hill.
We also have a guest route suggestion with Mark Wilson’s Waddesden Greenway special at 10am. This is mainly a reasonably flat ride which includes the cycleway from Aylesbury to Waddesden which is road bike friendly but does have the odd bit of gravel and is a multi-use path so care is needed. This route bypasses the track through Eythorpe which we found recently was closed to cyclists.
Our 10.30 route is a 22 mile route with mostly gentle slopes, a climb through Drayton Beauchamp will test the legs
