Once again we were blessed with fabulous weather for our all day ride last Sunday and a good time was had by all. It was very crowded at Covent Garden but that was no surprise and it was fun seeing all the Shaun the Sheeps.

It is time to put another date in your diary. I know it seems a long way away but we want to get our booking in for the Christmas Do. This year it will be on Thursday, 3 December at 7PM at the Sovereigns on Guildford Road. We need to know numbers by 20 October so will you please respond to Sandra sandra_sgs_57@hotmail.com

The menu can be found on this link so be sure to let Sandra know your choice when you email her. http://www.emberinns.co.uk/content/dam/ember/pdf/LN15/pub/the-sovereigns-woking-festivefayremenu.pdf We hope you can make it.

Our last easy social ride will be to see the Acer Wood in Windsor Great Park. Here is hoping the cool nights will paint the leaves! The date is 18 October and Sandra will be leading it. We will start from near the children’s play ground in Woking Park at 2:00.

Pub night will be 27 October at the Sovereigns.

I wanted also to remind paid up members of the following which we received from CTC headquarters when we paid our annual membership :“ Members of your group can now join CTC too for just £16 a year by going to www.ctc.org.uk/affiliate-join .And putting in the code. This will guard against claims for accidental damage caused by them while cycling. (Terms and conditions apply). They will also receive:
– Access to a wide range of retail discounts.
– Our entertaining weekly e-newsletter ‘CycleClips’, full of all the very latest cycling news. They can also enjoy their own regular copy of ‘Cycle’ and free legal claims advice by upgrading to full CTC membership for individuals and families.”

For members who would like to avail themselves of the offer, please e-mail me to get the code. I send this e-mail to members and non-members alike so hence the reason I am not able to publish the code here.

Once again, the real “to do” is to notify Sandra that you can make the Christmas Do and what you would like to eat.

Carole’s September blog

Now that rainy August is behind us, I wonder if Indian Summer is on the way. Actually August wasn’t too bad till the end of the month.

Congratulations to all those who took part in challenges this summer. We were fortunate the weather was great for the Prudential Ride Surrey weekend but  I don’t think the Breeze ride in Windsor was very good.

Norman took on the challenge of getting the Nuffield in Woking to put in cycle stands for their visitors. He also reminded Woking of a few pot holes that need repairing. I hope everyone knows about   www.fillthathole.org.uk where you can report pot holes and hopefully they will be filled.

Our easy social ride will be on 20 September starting at 2 PM at Woking Leisure centre near the children’s playground.

Our all day ride to see the great Shaun the Sheep roundup will be 27 September. We will be meeting on the car park side of Woking station ready to leave at 9am. We will be cycling to London via the Thames Path, Richmond Park, Barnes Common, Putney, Brompton Cemetery, Hyde Park, Green Park and on to Covent Garden where the round up will be in progress. We will be stopping for coffee and lunch along the way and coming back by train from Waterloo Station. The whole journey from Woking is about 35 miles.  We will have an alternative meting point by the coffee van at Walton Bridge. If you are going to meet us there, you should be there about 9:45. Would those who would like to join us please send me an e-mail so we will not leave without you and also tell me where you will be joining us…..Woking or Walton Bridge.

Pub night is 29 September at the Sovereigns on Guildford Road, Woking.

Happy cycling
