I hope everyone has been enjoying the wonderful autumn weather. We had fabulous weather for our all day ride around Hampshire villages led by Robin. Cool to start with but then the sun came out. It was amazing how quiet the lanes were in the area. We saw many cycling groups and very few cars. And those we did see were actually very respectful.
Our last easy ride for the year will be this Sunday, 16 October, leaving at 2 from our usual meeting place, near the children’s playground in Woking Park. After this one, our next ride won’t be till the third week in March of next year.
Those who would like to carry on riding in the winter have many choices. For the ladies only there is the Breeze rides on Thus. mornings about twice a month. For everyone who would like to do 15 mile rides, the Woking CC Saturday Social rides are most Saturdays at 9:30 leaving from the green outside the Cricketers in Horsell. You can get information regarding their rides by searching for them on Facebook. Their club for more experienced riders is under Woking CC on Facebook.The Elmbridge cycle group continue with rides of 25-30 miles on the second Sunday of the month. More information about other rides an be found on our website.
I said in my last WCUG matters that Action Bikes had closed down and they were moving back to their home base in Addlestone. They are called Surrey Cycles, 75 Station Road, Addlestone and they will still honour our membership card for the 10% discount.
Norman continues trying to make some progress on reinstating the cycle/pedestrian route from Chobham to Woking. No good news yet.
Most importantly, time is running out to get your order in for our Christmas dinner on Weds. 7 December at the Sovereigns. Please look at the menu:
