Local support needed for Charity Ride

Many of you may know that Jose and I are keen supporters of Action Medical Research (AMR), organisers of many great rides including the Bucks 100 on 16th September.  If you are looking for a great ride from Waddesdon Manor, please give it a go.

Jose and I will not be riding it as we have voluntered to assist in the running of it.  The organisers are looking for other volunteers to help if you can spare the time and are prepared if needed to contribute towards  expenses if needed and in addition give free entry to one of their 100 Series Rides next year.  If anyone is keen to help please drop us al ine via the website.

Whilst riding or helping we will of course be thinking of our brave Crusaders on the Normandy Conquest Ride!!


Paralympics 2012 Velos Ride

In celebration of what is turning out to be a hugely successful 2012 Paralympics, we here at Velo Towers thought that it would be fitting to plan a route this week that takes us close by it’s birthplace, Stoke Mandeville.

Our resident bike mechanic, Dod, has kindly volunteered to lead out a more relaxed paced 12 mph group so … if you haven’t been out with us for a while and want to gently ease yourself back into cycling, this is a great opportunity to catch the decent weather and stretch those legs. We will be meeting at the Rose & Crown Ivinghoe on Sunday (2nd September) at around 9:50am with a view to setting off at 10am.
