Vinghoe Velos Christmas dinner
Once again Jayne has very kindly made the arrangements for our Vinghoe Velos Christmas Dinner. The date is the 13th December and the venue is rehydration central : The Rose and Crown, Ivinghoe. Places are limited to just 30 so whilst the absolute cut off date is the 8th December, demand is expect to be high so you will have to act fast to secure a seat at the table(s).
To reserve your place at the No.1 Non-Cycling Event for Cyclists in Ivinghoe this Winter, hand over a £5 deposit to a member of the pub staff ASAP. At the same time, please select your selections from their Christmas Menu . The cost for three courses will be £25.
Alpine Adventure 2014
We have had a fantastic response to the mid-week post suggesting a trip to the Alps in 2014 to climb up some amazing mountain passes. At the moment the responses stand at –
To answer some of the concerns that have been put forward, we plan to ride in (and stay together as) groups up the climbs. The only exception may be Alpe d’Huez where we will all go at our own individual pace and meet for coffee and cake at the top (where we suspect Andy Beezer might have had 2 or 3 coffees before he has company). The B&B is already running out of rooms so we have to be quick and commit at least the deposit this weekend. If you are wavering and have any questions, please do let us know – we will commit to final numbers on Monday. The sign up / questions page is on our website so please get in touch by Sunday evening if you are interested.
The Met Office is predicting high winds by Monday but we have it on good authority from our friend Michael Fish that they are completely wrong there is absolutely nothing to worry about. Either way, best to get any rides out of the way on Sunday before the proper storm hits / misses.
As always, we meet at The Pub from 9:45am with a 10am depart.
