The first of our two club member only rides on Sunday 12th November was a "Sunday Swinley" ride at Swinley Forest near Bracknell. Just two of us turned up for this super short notice organised ride (it was only confirmed late the day before). An early start was cold, but the sun was out. The trails were running fast but there were some large areas of standing water and some nice sloppy sections and lethal roots thrown in too. The carrot cake went down a treat mind.
Our last Club Members ride took place this weekend just gone (28th October). Five club members took to the trails on a Chiltern Hills 'Chequers Loop'. Trail conditions were pretty good considering the time of year. The photo taken at our 'secret club office'. Thank you to club member Steve Attwood for planning and leading the ride. More club members rides to be published in the diary very soon.
The view from Ivinghoe Beacon during our club members only ride at the weekend, one of the many reasons we all love the Chilterns.
Club member SteveA kindly led yet another great Chiltern Hills based loop taking in some fantastic views and singletrack in and around Wendover, Hastoe and Dunsmore areas. Four club members joined Steve out on this ride, taking in some new dusty trails and enjoying the sunshine!
Club members Steve kindly organised an extended Chequers route out and about in the sunshine with both some long standing members and new members alike. A big thank you to everyone for attending and to Steve for organising.
