Ivinghoe Velos Rides For Sunday 25th February 2024

We ride on Sunday starting from Ivinghoe church at 10am or 10.30am. Routes have been carefully selected to feature some of the best of our local cycling. You can’t beat riding in a group, so dust off your lycra and join us for fun on two wheels.

10am longer option. Riding up towards Quainton we cut through Oving and then back via Dunton, rolling rather than hilly 36 miles https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45644388

10am medium option a fairly flat loop heading towards Leighton Buzzard, 27.5 miles with a couple of minor bumps https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45652393

10.30 shorter option a 17 mile loop heading through Tring, with no noticable climbing https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45080828

We are not a cycle club, there is no membership fees, riders can come along as often or as little as they like but do remember if no one rides the enthusiasm for the group will wane and riders will look elsewhere for group options. We have various distance and pace options to suit most casual riders. While our quickest rides can go along at a reasonable pace, If you are training for the Olympics we are probably not the group for you! Our top speed average rarely exceeds 16mph while our lower mileage rides are often around 14mph, depending on how much climbing is involved! Riding in a group saves a good 20% of your usual solo effort so join the group for some easier miles!

Rides Start and finish in Ivinghoe, at the junction by the church, our general aim is to leave no one behind unless they are dead set on wanting to continue solo (we often hear riders say they are happy to continue on their own but we know it’s always easier in a group so we moderate the pace to get everybody back, or split into pace groups)

While we meet and complete suggested routes each week, we can make no guarentees about traffic safety and road conditions, anyone joining us must be responsible for their own safety, ensure their equipment is in good order and ride with due caution.

Roll on Sunday

Anyone around on Saturdays for some gentle riding with tea and cake as incentive….. “the tea ride” leaves the Rose and Crown at 10am on Saturday morning.
