Rides for bank holiday Sunday

It may be the last stage of the Giro d’Italia on Sunday but all the action will be Ivinghoe with plenty of rides to suit all tastes…

Dave ‘Chaves’ Howe has designed a rather clever 8am ride that can be either 100km or 100 miles depending on how much time you have – with the split coming in Long Crendon after passing through Thame. Do come and ride but please don’t do a Kruijswijk.

100km route: http://www.mapometer.com/cycling/route_4328262.html

100 miles route: http://www.mapometer.com/cycling/route_4321211.html

The plan is to ride together at a steady 15 mph with a cafe break at Treacles tea room in Thame.

Meanwhile Dave ‘Nibali’ Bembridge has used all his shark-of Messina-like experience to come up with a pair of 10am rides…

16 miles: http://gb.mapometer.com/cycling/route_1451600.html

32 miles: http://gb.mapometer.com/cycling/route_1457724.html

The question is – which Dave will be wearing pink tomorrow?

Velos Rides for Sunday 22nd May 2016

9am start, 48 miles

10am start, 48 miles (led out by Gary)

As always, please do bring your chosen route with you. We depart at the time stated from the Rose and Crown Public House in Ivinghoe.

Next Sunday there is a great opportunity to get a century ride in. Dave “There’s Only One Ring” Howe has cooked up a great route and promises a refuelling stop half way round. You can find more details over on the Velos Facebook group, The Rear Hub.
