Hey February! There is only one thing more annoying that how long January is and that’s jokes about how long January is. We are now moving into the possibility of ride titles like “feels like spring has arrived”, “4 seasons in one ride” and “banishing the winner blues”. The evenings will start getting lighter and within a couple of months we will be riding without lights in the early evenings! Once into warmer months we will extend the longer Sunday ride and once a month include a coffee stop at the mid-point. We will also plan some “away days” where we drive for an hour or so to start our ride enabling us to experience some different roads. We’ve avoided any snowy rides so far this winter but there is still time for a mountain bike trip down the skate rink at Watery Lane, fortunatley this Sunday is looking dry and mild.
Three ride options for everyone to enjoy this week, thanks to Dave B for providing the 23 mile and 30 mile routes. While we no longer call the 10.30 ride specifically new joiners and returners we still ride with the moto that no one gets left behind, so please support your fellow riders on your choosen route. The power of the peleton is greater than the individual (the breakaway does sometimes succeed but then no one talks to the yellow jersey in the pub)
All rides start at the road junction by Ivinghoe church and return to give riders the chance of a pint and debrief at the Rose and Crown pub. Please arrive before the advertised start time, with a good idea of the route you are completing, we may split into pace groups to avoid being too big a group if rider numbers are large.
