Ivinghoe Velos Rides For Sunday 3rd April 2022

Three Routes to choose from this week plus some other bits to have a look at for future weeks.

The 9am route was reserached last week by myself and Richard and I can recommend it as a nice flowing travel through the Aylesbury Vale. 58 miles https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38858781

At 10am we head towards Chesham before looping back across Ashridge and over the beacon. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38917575

Our 10.30am route is a lovely 20 mile excursion to Cublington via Wing and back through Wingrave https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38917602

All routes start outside the church in Ivinghoe and finish with optional reward & refreshment at the Rose and Crown pub. Please arrive before the expected start time. We have a poll on our facebook page “the rear hub” to gauge rider numbers & encourage others to join rides. So if you are riding give us the heads up via the poll.

We will be adding extra pace options for our longer 9am rides in the coming weeks in case the usual 9am speed is a barrier for riders to enjoy these options

We would love to see more ladies enjoying our rides, so if anyone has any suggestion in how we could support local ladies to join our outings it would be good to hear from you. Should we advertise a ladies only route?

The mythical Ivinghoe Velos Saturday tea ride gets spoken about on street corners, but we are not sure if this still happens on a regular basis, if someone would like to voluneer to resurrect it, or promote it, please come forward!

Our lovely Ivinghoe Velos kit gets praise from everyone who sees it. We would like to see if there is demand for a new kit order, we’ve added a poll on our facebook rear hub page, please vote if you are keen to place an order.

Tuesday saw an introduction to cross country riding up in Ashridge for a group of seven MTB/Hybrid riders, as this is a lovely way to pass a light spring/summer evening, we will be organising more “offroad adventure rides” in the coming weeks. Easy cross country rather than dare devil downhill. No one gets left behind!
