New roads and sunshine - 18 riders head to Muddy Boots on the 18th

Not the most auspiciuos start to the ride for me today as my gear cable snapped within a mile of home - so I had to race back, nick my daughters bike which needed pedals and head back out. Luckily we had pre planned the route so I knew that the group would be heading off towards Clivedon and I met the 17 strong peleton en route.  It was a beautiful sunny day, and as usual we tried to plan a route that would head into the wind on the way out, so that we would have a tailwind to push us home. Today that meant heading NE, which is not a usual route for us, so Dave came up with a ride to stop at a new cafe near Chalfont St Giles.

Hilly 30 Cancelled

Unfortunately we have had to cancel tomorrow's Hilly 30 as there are five sets of traffic lights on the course.

Apologies for the short notice.

 

Cancelled 10tt Thursday 16th - more traffic lights

Despite my previous post saying tonights TT was on, traffic lights have now appear on the Bird Hills roundabout due to a water mains problem near the roundabout,  so it's now cancelled. 

Lets hope we have more luck next week on the Shurlock Row course

Thanks

Andrew

A sunny summers morning

 

With another scorching day forecast, we pre planned an earlier start from the Clock Tower today so 15 of us set off from the car park at 0830 whilst it was still vaguely cool.  We used to regularly ride a route up through Twyford and Playhatch to Nettlebed and Christmas Common so thought we would give this a go, and if we split we would meet for coffee at The Barn.

Early start clock tower run 5-8-18

To beat the heat a little we will be starting the clock tower ride at 0830 on the 5th August.... see you there!

 

 

The 5th MDCC Box Hill ride

 

Its hard to believe we have done this ride 5 times now - how time flies - but I think for me today was one of the best Box Hill rides yet!  Of course we are enjoying such an amazing spell of weather, and the 8am start from Birds Hill meant that we enjoyed the nice cool bit of the day as 14 of us set off on the 70 mile round trip to the top of Box Hill and back. Three of those 14 were new members - what a great introduction to our club!

Summer club ride to Box Hill - Sunday 15th July

This Sunday we have our annual club ride to Box Hill and back leaving from the entrance to Bird Hills Golf Club at 8:00am.

An email has been sent to all members with details.  Any queries contact David Dyer.

Revised Drift Road 25tt course for Sunday 1st July - Club 25tt Championship

This year we using a modified course that starts near Wellers Lane at the top of Hawthorne Hill and finishes prior to the last climb along the Drift road.  So this will be a quicker course as you only race up Hawthorne Hill twice instead of the normal 3 times.  Racing starts at 3pm.

The start is at OS ref SU882737 and finish SU893753.  If you enter this into Streetmap.co.uk and select OS ref you'll get the actual locations.  Or email me via the club website and I'll send over an email complete with maps.

Thanks Andrew Payne

A very busy (and varied) weekend of riding

The club's riders have been out and about at all sorts of events over this past weekend:

 

Clock Tower Ride Report - 10th June 2018

The average turnout for the Sunday morning Clock Tower Ride continues to grow (15 ish today) and, given the range of preferences and abilities, choosing a route to suit all presented something of a challenge.  Fiona, Janette and Emmaline had expressed a preference for a shorter ride at a moderate pace while Deane, Simon, John, et al are all capable of reaching escape velocity.
