Rides in May and June

Rupert writes: We're pleased to announce our May and June rides lists. With longer days we can start to enjoy some longer rides.

Our Sunday day rides continue with a mix of full-day and light day rides on alternate weekends. But pay attention to the ride details - some of the full day rides are marked as "longer rides", indicating a longer ride than usual.

The Sunday afternoon rides also have some longer rides over the summer. But we have made a small change this year: we will have a regular 1.30pm afternoon start time and instead we will vary the time we stop for tea by 30 mins for the more distant stops to have enough time for an enjoyable ride.

Don't forget that we have some extra rides over the summer. Our Wednesday evening rides are now a weekly event and there are also some car-assisted rides on Tuesdays. Why not try one of these rides for a change?

Lastly, a reminder to you all to please volunteer to lead a ride or two so that all our rides have a leader. Thank you to everyone who has already put their name down. Rupert Goodings, Runs Secretary.
