Carole’s April Blog

Dear All,

This is very late to remind you that Pub night is this Tues. 30 April at 7:30 at the Sovereigns on Guildford Road.  I was waiting to be sure I could  include the information about our AGM. Our AGM will be Monday 20 May 2019 at 7:30 at Old Woking Community Centre, Sundridge Road, Old Woking. This is right near to Woking College off  Rydens Way. Come and tell us what is on your mind, if anyone would like to join the committee, you would be more than welcome.

The Easter good weather made for a good turnout for the Elmbridge Easter Egg Hunt. There were 2 teams from the WCUG and you will not be surprised to hear we got the wooden spoons! We all know a lot more about Byfleet than we did before though and it was good fun.

Not too far from home, it has just come to my attention that Fleet is having their second annual Fleet Flyer Charity cycle ride on Sunday 12 May. There are three routes of different lengths: 20, 55 and 90 miles. If you are interested read all about it at

I would also like to bring to your attention another event that one of our members, Annette Covey, is an ambassador for. It is not cycling related but you can always cycle over to the Leisure Centre to participate! They are inviting anyone who is living with or beyond cancer, families, friend and healthcare professional to join them once a month to walk, jog, run or cheer on people  at the park run in Woking Park. The event takes place on the last Saturday of the month starting from the Band Stand in Woking Park at 8:40. To read more about it follow the link to

Bike week in 2019 will be 8-16 June. The aim is to  encourage everyone to experience the thrills of ‘everyday’ cycling – whether that’s cycling to work, school, to the shops or just for leisure – to show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life. There are events planned all over the country. Our ride on Sunday 16 June will be shown on the event calendar. To see other events you can go to their website. I am not sure if  the Guildford group are doing their  “ Around the Hogs back” ride this year but I will let you know. It is always a fun ride.

Our year runs from end of May to end of May (don’t ask me why) so this is my usual “Dues are due” email. Still £5/year or £20/5 years. Membership is for the whole family and offers free Sunday social rides and discount on an affiliated membership to CTC. To activate the CTC membership we will need to send you the code. Details of how to make payment are on the website, or pay when you come on a ride or join us at the pub.

Our ride this month will be on Sunday 19 May starting at the Leisure centre near the children’s playgroup leaving at 2PM. I will be leading it and if you need to contact me on the day, the number is 07746 394639. Please bring a spare inner tube for your bike in case you are unfortunate to have a flat tyre.

Last but not least, we are still waiting to hear the results of the Public Enquiry regarding Muddy Lane.

Happy cycling,

Carole Frost
