SummarySUMMER is here and we are now starting at 9.00am instead of 9.30am. With the earlier starts we can stretch the miles compared to winter months.In September we will once again be supporting the ABF Soldiers Charity ride which this year will be held at Leighton United Football Club, Stanbridge Road Tilsworth and if you sign up online will cost £23.00 +£1.56 fee, dont forget its more expensive on the day so it would pay to sign up now. This is a great event and a great charity supporting the British Army.
I am trying out a new idea of showing if the ride is an easy or harder ride, an easy one (E) suitable for new and experienced riders (M) for moderate ride distance 22-26 miles to venue but not too hilly and (H) for harder ie longer distance 25+ or hillier ride. Let me know what you think!
We meet at alternate venues every week as listed above, one week at Barton Library and the following week at All Saints Church Houghton Regis giving Icknield Road Club two very different areas to explore the countryside from the villages of Ivinghoe and Weedon to Hinxworth and Ashwell.
You will need mudgaurds for the winter months and lights in case of fog or poor conditions Dont forget your spare innertubes and pump for the ride and a little money for the coffee stop
