A reminder that our long afternoon ride will be this Sunday, 7 October. We will be leaving from our usual place, near the entrance to the children’s playground in Woking Park at 2:00. The ride will be following the tow path to Weybridge where we will pick up the new off road bicycle route to Walton bridge, where we will have tea. The ride will be a little longer than usual, around 20 miles, and we will be back a little later than usual. Karen will be leading the ride and if you need to contact her, the number is 07745208838.
Norman and I went to the exhibition regarding the planned redevelopment of Guildford Rd. south of Victoria Arch. They are proposing to remove the gyratory and make it two ways. A public consultation is on line until 24 October and we urge you to look at the proposal and let them know your views. Personally I object to the fact that you cannot turn left into Heathside Rd. therefore making it very difficult to get to Woking Community Hospital by car. Follow the link to the consultation, https://www.woking.gov.uk/guildfordrdconsultation and give your opinion.
Norman and Steve had a meeting with SCC and WBC engineers about plans for town cycling in the future. There are many plans afoot. Steve brought the plans of the proposals to the last pub night to show us. He said the people they talked to actually were very interested in putting in quality cycling facilities and so constructive criticisms would be welcomed. I will see if Norman and/or Steve are able to come to the next pub night, 30 Oct., and bring the plans if anyone wants to come and see them.
