Our chairman, Norman Johns, is recovering from his new shoulder operation and is keeping himself busy working on our behalf while he is off his bike for a few weeks. At the AGM he mentioned that one of the Woking Lib Dem manifesto statements was to improve the cycle infrastructure in Woking . Norman asked if we would prepare a wish list. One person suggested that a safe refuge be made for people turning into Horsell common road on the road back from Chobham near Mimbridge. If you can think of anything, would you please send your suggestions to me and I will pass them on to Norman.
To all our riders who like a little more cycling on one of our rides, our long afternoon ride will be Sunday July 7. We will be going to the Medicine Garden in Cobham and the ride will be about 22 miles long. We will be leaving as usual at 2 from near the children’s playground in Woking Park and will be back a little later than usual. If you should need to contact me on the day, my mobile is 07746394639.
Norman thought it would be a good idea to pass on to you two videos from Cycle England’s latest communication regarding safe cycling and road positioning: https://www.cyclinguk.org/road-position, https://www.cyclinguk.org/article/video-guide-five-top-tips-safer-journey.
I would also like to remind you that Prudential’s Ride London weekend is August 3 and 4. There are a lot of events on both days and you can read all about them at https://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/events/
Our next regular easy Sunday ride will be 21 July led by Karen Smith. If you should need to contact her on the day, her mobile number is 07745 208838. Please be sure to bring a spare inner tube to fit your bike should you be unfortunate to get a puncture.
Pub night is this Tuesday 25 June at The Sovereigns on Guildford Road from 7:30. If you should arrive by car and park in their car park, be sure to register your number plate at the machine at the bar.
May the summer sun continue and make for happy cycling.
