Cycling Group

 

The Cycling Group meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at around 10.00am depending on the location.  The routes are usually circular and about 20 miles in length. We usually stop at a suitable pub or restaurant for lunch. The starting point is announced in advance to group members. Members share the travel arrangements to get to and from the start point where convenient.

 

Cycling holidays are also arranged from time to time.

 

Costs 

Riders pay for their own lunch at the pub.

Annual Chinese Meal - Wednesday 17 January 2018

For our 11th Annual Chinese Meal, we have decided to repeat last years party at the China Water at Aston Clinton.
The venue has been booked for 7.15 pm on Wednesday 17th January 2018.
We are sorry that this date does not suit everybody but an alternative did not suit  everybody either.
As last year, there will be the same or  similar set menu which seems to have been appreciated last time.
Please let Malcolm know if you will be attending.

 

Best wishes,
Marie and Malcolm   mwhiterudds@gmail.com

Our 2018 cycling trip  will be to the New Forest from Monday April 23rd  to Thursday April 26th (3  nights).
This covers our usual monthly 4th Tuesday and means those of us in the walking group will be able to enjoy  our usual 3rd Tuesday on the 17th walk too.
Please make a note of the dates if you think you would like  to come, and I will let you have further details of accommodation and routes as and when they are decided.
Must keep cycling!

Cycling Holiday in Bordeaux - 1 to 8 September 2018

Our cycling group are embarking on a boat/ptember in the Bordeaux area of France. Anyone interested in cycling and not a member of the cycling group is welcome to join us on this adventure.

The holiday is on a river boat with hired bikes on board, and varying distances (20-32 miles) are cycled daily to the next embarkation point. Cycling is not compulsory and there is an option to stay on board.

Unfortunately there are only twin cabins available, upper or lower deck, £1536 pp and £1354 pp respectively.

Bike hire for the week is £75 or an e-bike would be £173.

A coach from Bordeaux railway station to the boat (about 1 hour) is £53 eachfor the round trip.

Travel is by own arrangement, flight, train or car, and for anyone interested to travel together we usually arrange this but a little nearer the time.

Cabins go like hot ckes and he cycling group have already booked theirs, so if you are interested, or would like more information, please contact as soon as possible:

Organiser: Eileen Monks  01844 216033 or 07772 311637 or emonks@tiscali.co.uk
