The usual three route options for riders this week, the weather forecast is good, so pick a route and join the fun! We will split into pace groups for each of the rides if there are large numbers of riders. Thanks to Dave Bembridge for the shorter routes and also for the details of a fantastic trip away in October to Mallorca, please see the bottom of this post for the details!
The 9am route heads mostly south to Chandlers Cross, this 55.5 mile route has a routine amount of hills and some pretty lanes to cycle along. The 10am group heads on lovely lanes for a 30 route across to Redborune and Flamstead and the 10.30 ride is 23 miles on quiet road and reaches Stewkley before heading back via Cublington.
As you probably know, a group of us cycled in Mallorca last year and we are going again.This year we are going on Saturday 7th to Saturday 14th October this year if you would like to join us..
Last year we booked a couple of rooms (half board) but as you need to give a lead booker for each, it is easier, rather than block booking, for one person from each room to do the booking. Rooms (actually a mini apartment with a bedroom with a double or twin bed and a lounge with a double sofa bed) can take 1, 2 or 3 people. The more people, the lower the cost.
At the time of booking bikes can also be hired and a transfer to/from the airport in Mallorca is included so the only additional costs are your flight (3 a day from Luton), getting to the airport, lunch and beer.

Last year we stayed at the adult only Mar Senses, a bit more expensive but the food and ambiance were good and we avoided the irritating kids that people staying in the other hotel complained about.
Stuart Hall also put on about three guided rides per day ranging from 40-70 miles but you can also decide to do your own thing.
If the dates don’t work exactly, it’s also possible to flex arrival/departure dates or go for a shorter time. Travelling with partners etc is also viable.
If you have any questions ‘speak’ to either Richard, Grant, Graham Ian or me as I do not want to get into email ping pong..
