Our July open group ride was held from Ivinghoe Beacon and took in a circa fifteen mile Chiltern Hills loop. Non club members are invited to join us for these open rides to try out the club, meet the staff, meet some members and try out some new trails before joining as a Club member. Nine people turned up in total and a good ride was had by all with no mechanical issues or punctures (unusual!). The group did encounter a little bit of rain but generally a dry ride with tea and cake at the Bluebell Cafe. It was fantastic also to have a great mix of new first timer riders, returning faces and members too.
