Rides in May and June

Our rides lists for May and June are now available. Long days mean that our Sunday rides can have longer routes, with the addition of an afternoon tea stop. Many of these rides will be visiting various church halls for their delights of home-made tea and cakes.

Look out for two car-assisted rides on the last Sundays of May and June. On these days there will be no normal Sunday rides. On Sunday 31st May we offer a choice of two different rides: a car-assisted ride along NCN6 in Northants, or a longer, challenging ride from Brookside to Whitwell in Herts.

On Sunday 28th June there is no ride from Brookside; this time we offer two car-assisted rides in the rolling countryside near Rutland Water. These will have the same rendezvous/start point with a choice of a shorter, more leisurely, ride or a longer, hillier ride.

The rest of our weekly rides also get a little taste of summer. Our Thursday rides get a little bit longer over the summer and our Wednesday evening rides continue each week. Meanwhile we continue our bimonthly "short Saturday social" rides and our weekly Tuesday seniors rides.

We urgently need some more leaders for the Sunday rides - any ride marked as "leader needed" needs a leader. Please email Rupert (runs secretary) to volunteer if you can lead one of these rides. We would also welcome a volunteer leader for two of the Tuesday senior rides when David (our regular Tuesday leader) is taking some holiday. Again, please email Rupert to volunteer. Contact details here.
