Three rides on offer this week all routes meet at the church in Ivinghoe. The 9am route takes us to Wheatley and is an opportunity to complete a nice flat August Grand Fondo on day one. The 10am route heads through Flamstead onto some fine Bedfordshire lanes. The 10.30 route enjoys a climb through Soulbury rounding back for home from Stewkley.
A reminder to all riders that we are a group of friends riding bikes, not a cycle club. We suggest routes and enjoy the company of each other while out on our bikes. From the website: Those who lead out a group, the route planners and those who send the postings out each week in no way make any assurances as to the safety of any rides organised under the Ivinghoe Velos banner. Each participant is wholly responsible for their own safety, road worthiness of their steed, legal requirements to abide by the highway code and any insurances each individual feels are necessary. We don’t guarentee that there will be riders on all rides but are lucky enough to have a large following, so generally everyone gets some company out on the roads.
Please arrive with a good idea of the route and before your expected ride is due to start, otherwise you might find yourself riding alone.
