Sunday the usual three ride options
9am 43 miles. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/39538993 This route is 70km, 1km for every year our Queen has been on the throne. We pass Queen Street early on and the halfway point is of course Elizabeth Avenue. The routes are slightly shorter than usual so we can enjoy more time with refreshments at the Rose and Crown and enabling riders to get off to their respective street parties in the afternoon! As the ride is slightly shorter than usual we can ride at a relaxed pace taking in the waving flags and bunting put out for us along the route.
10am 31 miles Leighton Loop https://ridewithgps.com/routes/39620507
