Today's Club Members ride wasn't as boggy as we thought it would be, but it was still slippery in places. Four Club Members turned up for the fifteen mile circular route which ended at the Hellfire Caves Cafe for coffee in the sunshine.
A fantastic turn out of twenty-one people in total (including leaders) for today's open group ride at Wendover Woods, including a really nice mix of riders of different ages and abilities. We would have had a slightly larger group but sadly a couple of people dropped out with the dreaded flu. Everyone started out as one group, but later on broke into two smaller groups; Seamus led a longer route than originally planned, whilst MarkP stuck to plan A and continued to make it back to the cafe in good time for hot chocolates all round! Was it the perfect weather for a good ride out? We thought so! Cold enough to keep you moving, damp enough to make sure you're muddy! Great day and we hope we get many more open rides like it. A big thank you to our ride leaders and to everyone who attended and supported our ride!
A small turn out club members ride on Saturday 30th October. Absolutely amazing dry trail conditions all in and around Wendover, Ivinghoe and Ashridge. A fun route with lots of singletrack and amazing scones!
What utterly amazing trail conditions for October; hard-packed, fast and flowing with the gorgeous autumnal colours in all directions. A small team of three headed out for today's club ride, club member Richard unfortunately dropped out with the vicious man flu! The loop started at Coombe Hill main monument and routed out towards Chequers, Cadsden, Whiteleaf and Great Hampden before looping back in a return. A couple of tough climbs, only the odd sticky bit and some fun singletrack. Great to see club member Jez out and about on the bike too, even if it he was going the wrong way! More club member rides to be published online shortly.
Another great open ride this month with six newcomers to the club in attendance. Unfortunately two of our newcomers had to turn around pretty early on due to an unrepairable mechanicals, but the rest of the group got on with the task at hand, conquered Ivinghoe Beacon and pushed on at a good pace along the canal and then back into the Ashridge Estate. The earlier than usual start was a shrewd move as towards the end of the ride the weather came in and there were five very wet but very happy riders rolling back into the car park.
