The forecast is much, MUCH dryer than last week, which is a good thing as last Sunday was one of the toughest group rides we have endured, mainly due to the rain, sleet, hail, floods and freezing temperatures.
Some of our group have expressed interest in riding what is regarded as the toughest Sportive held in around here – The Chiltern 100 that takes place on the 1st June. A few Velos have signed up already to the 110 mile Gran Fondo. If you are considering it, our advice is to sign up now – last year they were full by March !
This week’s Sunday routes have kindly been submitted by Mr Dave “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” Bembridge. The first is a 31 mile loop taking in Great Gaddesden, Potten End and Hawridge. The second shorter route of 21 miles heads off in the same direction, but cuts back towards home at Potten End. So tomorrow is ideal if you are unsure which route is for you – simply hold off deciding until the split point.
One last thing. The Sun is forecast to be out tomorrow, which normally is a great thing. The only down side is that it sits low on the horizon and can dazzle both us and drivers following us. Please bear this in mind – it may even be advisable to have a rear light on just in case.
