Carole’s June Blog II

Dear All,

I forgot to send a reminder that Pub night was last night but I did want to remind those who are interested in a nice long all day ride, that ours will be this Sunday 1 July. It will be to Shoreham via the Downs Link around 40 miles and led by Barbara Rossouw with back up from Chris Jeggo and Karen Smith. They will be leaving Woking Park meeting where we usually meet by the children’s playground at 8:15. If the weather stays hot, be sure to take lots of water and a swim suit if you want to take a dip before catching the train home. If you intend to go will you please give Barbara a call on her mobile 07742809031 or email her on, so she won’t leave without you. And don’t forget to take a spare inner tube, or two.

Our AGM was held on 18 June and the minutes can be read on our website under the Useful Information heading.

Cycle to work day is back. This year it will be Weds. 15 August. copy the link, pledge miles and maybe win a prize!

We have also had an appeal to “Ride to the Moon-save a Dad ” to tackle prostate cancer. Read all about it and get involved!: I have attached the poster should you want to organize an event at work or pass on the message to other cyclists. You can even contribute miles by spinning in the gym.

We have also been contacted regarding an event taking place in September, starting in Tadworth which is a bit of a distance but if you fancy doing something for the Children’s Trust on 9 September, go to the following Web site.

Meanwhile we are still waiting to see the date when the Muddy Lane public enquiry will resume..

Another note for your diary. Les Bowerman informs me that the Veteran-Cycle Club Ripley Section’s Jumble sale will be 15 September in the Ripley Village Hall.

Our next easy social ride will be 15 July starting near the children’s playground in Woking Park leaving at 2PM. Norman will be leading the ride so should you need to contact him on the day, his mobile number is: 07761221310. Don’t forget to bring a spare inner tube for your bike.

Pub night will be 31 July.

Take care when cycling in this heat and drink a sufficient amount of water.

Happy cycling,

Carole Frost

Dear All,

Summer is here, the sky is blue. May it continue!

This is Bike Week and I hope you pledged miles and are just waiting to see if you won a bike. Our Bike Week ride will be this Sunday, 17 June starting as usual from near the children’s playground and Woking Park, leaving at 2PM. Since it is part of Bike Week, it is free. It will be led by Julia and Val and will mostly be on the canal tow paths so road bikes really won’t be suitable. Tea will be at the Anchor. Julia’s mobile number is 07989552436  should you need to contact her on the day..

The Muddy Lane Inquiry was adjourned due to a late submission by the main objector. A new date was made which was to be 26 June, but unfortunately that date has also had to be cancelled since Daniel Williams , our chief witness, has a conflict of dates. So no Inquiry on 26 June. I will send an email when the new date has been decided.

 Our AGM will be Monday 18 June 2018 at 7:30 at Old Woking Community Centre, Sundridge Road, Old Woking. This is right next to Woking College off Rydens Way. Come and hear a report on our various campaigns including Muddy Lane. Come and tell us what is on your mind. If anyone would like to join the committee, that could be arranged.

I received the following from Barbara who will be leading the all day ride on 1 July:

WCUG all day ride 1st July, Down’s link to Shorham starting from Woking Leisure Centre meeting at 8.15.Have a good breakfast before setting out.  Stopping for elevenes along the Downs Link then lunch in Shoreham.  We will take the train back.  Tickets can be bought in Shoreham £29.10 (group tickets would lower the cost) see Trainline for train times. Hybrids or mountain bikes are the best fit for the Downs Link.  Estimated gentle pace of 9 miles per hour.  No one will be left behind.. Karen, Andrew and Chris are joining us as the support team. Bring water and nibbles for the road and a swimsuit for a swim in the sea. “

I suggest you let Barbara know if you will be going on the ride so no one will be left behind—at the start!  Her email is, and if you need to contact her on the day, her mobile is 07742809031.

Pub night will be 26 June at the Sovereigns.

Happy cycling
