Fourth instalment of beginner B yesterday evening and the first ever post ride write up. I think it is simply because we are usually too knackered to do anything more than veg in front of the TV afterwards. These rides are proving quite popular. Normally we have two groups, but with the heat tonight just one group of 7 out. The plan was a steady ride between 17 to 18 mph, however, the speed daemons crept up and it was over 18โ€ฆopps! Our group riding skills have improved, we now all know how to rotate properly and we are communicating well as a group. We need to try and stick close together, but I am sure this will come with confidence; after all we are only in week 4. This of course wouldnโ€™t be happening if it wasnโ€™t for the coaching skills of Martin Lloyd and Tony Price. So from myself and Bex, and everyone joining these rides I would like to say a special thank you to Martin and Tony for all your help and support on this. Everyone is getting so much out of it, and every week we are making progress. ... See MoreSee Less

Would love be fast enough to come on one of these. Well done ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Great work

Really hoping to try and get out on these over summer. You’ll need to start from scratch with the communication then though!๐Ÿ˜‚

Yes Clive Pratley. No half wheeling your mate which then turns into a race …. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hope you keep going into Sept and beyond as I'd like to join too.

Due to the forecast and my knee problem. Also no interest really as I had to change the day.

How did you get on Luke ?

Ok thanks Dave, 23:17. Room for improvement as I had to contend with a tractor and the subsequent build up of traffic as a result so the first half was quite a bit slower than it otherwise would have been. Nearer 22:30 would have been on the cards I think had it not have been for that. Next time….๐Ÿ‘

Comment on Facebook

There’s an e-bike shop on the Tything… might be worth contacting them?

Not many do 60 without a charge, but a rental may include the charger.

We offered you the use of an ebike via your own Facebook page.

Tonightโ€™s TT CANCELLED.
I checked the course and there were many places where the tarmac was melted, even sticking to my skin. I realise that for many this is like closing school because snow is forecast and I also realise that we have all ridden in such conditions but, in my opinion, that is different from riding a TT. Itโ€™s not possible to please everyone but given the feedback I have had from a handful of people I have decided caution is the best option. Iโ€™m hoping you agree.๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ

It makes sense Peter Cockcroft, and it is very good of you indeed to check the course! Thank you.

Makes sense safety comes first

Meet Dave for a ride to join Bex instead. Event updated.

Roads were sticky at 8.30am so good decision ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Thanks Peter Cockcroft

In an attempt to get out to meeting points ๐Ÿ™ƒ I'm looking at getting a carrier for my car. I only have one bike, and I have a towbar, but can anyone suggest a carrier that won't stop me towing at the same time. And a local supplier if possible. Thanks. ... See MoreSee Less

Halfords used to do one that mounted on a plate behind the tow hitch. I had one on my Landrover for years. I’m sure that even if they don’t that someone else will.

It was horrendous on my commute home!

There is melted tarmac on the first leg of the Hanley Swann lap of the 25. It was literally peeling away from the road in places. I can’t imagine it’ll improve in another 24 hours. You could potentially run the event as a 20 with two laps of the Chance Lane course as an alternative?

Marshalls are not weather dependent, we are there rain, snow or sunshine. ๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿ˜“

There is a note from Peter on messenger that the TT tonight is OFF.

Cotswold 75
Very enjoyable route today through some pretty Cotswold villages.
Bout 17 turned up so we split into two groups. Nice to meet some potential new members who came along. We hadnโ€™t even got out of worcester and one of us had mechanical issues and had to abort.
Coming the Huddington one of us punctured โ€ฆ
We waited at hilliers for the second group and someone else aborted with a broken spoke.Another got fed up of waiting and rode on.
We proceeded through Bidford and crossed the river then headed for welford on Avon then on to mickleton.
Then we found a nice little cafe at chipping Camden. After the tea stop 4 wanted to go back through Broadway cos of time issues.
We then rode through to Blockley and bourton on the hill. This was a bit hilly but nothing like as bad as the route profile suggests. We passed through lovely picturesque villages
Then we headed towards snowshill and down towards Ford.
Lovely descending stanway to a second cafe stop and much needed water bottle fill up at Toddington train station.
Then we rode on through Stanton ,wormington, Hinton on the green then Elmley castle. One of us fell off the back and said his legs had gone and asked us to leave him to plod home. We then got to pershore and on to Walcot lane. The tarmac was sticky and melting in drakes broughton.
We then did Wadborough,littleworth then the footbridge and home.
Thanks to the backmarkers for your help it was appreciated.
Thanks all for the company.

Thanks for organising the ride Dave, lovely route and great company. If next time you can turn down the heater control by about 6 deg that would be perfect ๐Ÿ™‚. Pity a few of us had to peel off after Chipping Campden, we had a nice ride back, we couldn't resist an ice cream stop at Pershore. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks Dave - really nice route and good company. Sorry I had to crack on but I was time limited. I clocked 85 miles - I went too far past the railway place and had to double back. See you around.

Great Day I was glad I didn't have the Lamar sandwich ๐Ÿฅช

First ride organised = first ride report!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ 12 brave souls headed out from Whitlenge Garden Centre on Lucy's magical mystery tour, oh sorry, the Wellbeing Ride. Postponed from 2 weeks ago due to the shocking weather, today could not have been more different, there was a definite smell of suncream as we headed out! Only a couple of 'minor' detours for the pottering group, despite planning the route and two of us having new Garmins!!! Luckily 12 also returned (huge sigh of relief from me ๐Ÿ˜) for coffee and cake. Great lanes, great company, I even found some roads Nigel Rees hadn't been on before and wants to use again!!

By popular demand, todayโ€™s Social ride featured the Riverside Cafรฉ at Tenbury Wells, preceded by a skip up Clifton Bank and followed by the superb river road through Eastham and the Teme Valley.

Great to see Rick leading the peleton ๐Ÿคฃ

Not TT they would all be disqualified for drafting, could be a road race or a well organised Club Run.

Looks like they bought their bikes at Halfords. The wheels are the wrong way around. I won't get into the debate about whether pith helmets should be made compulsory ๐Ÿง
