Now that rainy August is behind us, I wonder if Indian Summer is on the way. Actually August wasn’t too bad till the end of the month.
Congratulations to all those who took part in challenges this summer. We were fortunate the weather was great for the Prudential Ride Surrey weekend but I don’t think the Breeze ride in Windsor was very good.
Norman took on the challenge of getting the Nuffield in Woking to put in cycle stands for their visitors. He also reminded Woking of a few pot holes that need repairing. I hope everyone knows about www.fillthathole.org.uk where you can report pot holes and hopefully they will be filled.
Our easy social ride will be on 20 September starting at 2 PM at Woking Leisure centre near the children’s playground.
Our all day ride to see the great Shaun the Sheep roundup will be 27 September. We will be meeting on the car park side of Woking station ready to leave at 9am. We will be cycling to London via the Thames Path, Richmond Park, Barnes Common, Putney, Brompton Cemetery, Hyde Park, Green Park and on to Covent Garden where the round up will be in progress. We will be stopping for coffee and lunch along the way and coming back by train from Waterloo Station. The whole journey from Woking is about 35 miles. We will have an alternative meting point by the coffee van at Walton Bridge. If you are going to meet us there, you should be there about 9:45. Would those who would like to join us please send me an e-mail so we will not leave without you and also tell me where you will be joining us…..Woking or Walton Bridge.
Pub night is 29 September at the Sovereigns on Guildford Road, Woking.
