Dear All,

Another last minute reminder that Pub night is tomorrow night 28 May, 7:30 at the Sovereigns.

We had our AGM last week and the minutes will soon be available to read on our web site under “useful information”. Norman wanted to appeal once again for those who have suggestions to specific projects to improve the journeys of cyclists in the Woking area, that they should send their suggestions to me. He will then present them to Woking council. Our year runs from end of May to end of May  so this is an extra  “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 here.

Bike week in 2019 will be 8-16 June. There are events planned all over the country. Our ride on Sunday 16 June will be part of the event.  To see other events you can go to their website

A few of us have joined the London open garden weekend bike ride in the past. London cycle leaders take groups from one garden to another. There is one led ride on Saturday 8 June and two on Sunday, 9 June. If you want to find out more about it, go to their website

Our next easy social bike ride will be 16 June starting from near the children’s playground in Woking Park, leaving at 2PM. No charge for non-members this time because it is part of Bike Week. Please bring a spare inner tube for your bike should you be unfortunate enough to have a puncture.  If you need to contact me on the day, the number is 07746 394639.

Pub night in June will be on the 25th.Don’t forget to register your  car at the bar should you drive and park in their car park.

George James is organizing the Lions Martian Race (running) on Horsell Common 30 June and would welcome any volunteers who could help with marshalling, handing out water or whatever. Let George know if you can spare some time by contacting him at

We have decided to move our long afternoon bike ride to Sunday 7 July. This ride will start at the same time but we will be back a bit later and we will be going a bit further. More like 20-22 miles than our normal 15-18 miles. I will give more information on this ride in my next email but put the date in your calendar.

Happy cycling.

Membership secretary

P.S. still no news on results on public enquiry regarding Muddy Lane

Dear All.

I would like to remind everyone that 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  We hope you can make it. I have attached a note (see below*) from our chairman, Norman Johns regarding a “wish list” and hope you will take a minute to scour your brain and let us know if you have any suggestions. You can respond to me by e-mail should you not be able to make the meeting but we would much rather you came to the meeting! And I will bring lots of membership cards should you want to pay your dues!

We have also had an email regarding the proposals for the provisions of better cycle facilities around the M25/A3 junction. I will forward it to you in a separate e-mail . We have asked to be included in any meetings regarding this matter and if you have any views, let us know or reply directly to them.

Lastly, we will be heading out to Send to see the giraffes and beyond on our ride on Sunday 19 May leaving Woking Park at 2:00.

Hope to see you at the AGM

*  As one of the Woking Lib Dem manifesto statements was to ” Improve the Cycle Infrastructure in Woking” or words with the same intentions, please can you ask members [before the AGM] if they would send to you a wish-list to be considered at the AGM.
