It’s hard to say exactly what the weather has in store for us tomorrow but it at least looks like it will start off dry. Meet at the Rose & Crown Ivinghoe, bring a rain jacket and a copy of your chosen route.

Lumpy and bumpy 38 miles:
or 29 steady miles…
9am ride, 47 miles:
This one doesn’t range too far from home in case it tips it down and we want to cut it short…
The weather forecast is overcast but dry for tomorrow with a breeze from the south west. Don’t forget to bring a copy of your chosen route with you to the Rose & Crown, Ivinghoe.
The 9am rides explore the Chiltern lanes and hills around Great Hampden and Radnage before returning on the flat via the Icknield Way.
9am ride option 1: 50 miles: The Stokenchurch Thumb:
Those wanting a longer ride (currently 3 of us) can peel off towards Christmas Common just after Stokenchurch and do the Benson Finger with a lunch stop at the Waterside Cafe at Benson Marina.
9am ride option 2: 70 miles: The Benson Finger
Both rides stay together until Stokenchurch.
The 10am rides are supplied courtesy of Mr Bembridge:
It could be quite wet tomorrow morning (according to the BBC) so if you do come out don’t forget a rain jacket. Sadly I can’t join you for this event since quite frankly I had my fill of rain on Friday.
This goes very close to the Green Dragon Eco Farm Cafe at Hogshaw (zoom into the map a little), so if you need a warming cuppa then you could always call in.
10am rides (courtesy of Mr Bembridge)…
This weekend is our Charity Ride and our chosen charity this year is St Francis Hospice. It would be great to see a lot of Velo Jerseys out on Sunday supporting this. We are even providing at Drink station halfway round.
There is no entry fee or sponsorship required.but a just-giving page where you can make a donation to the charity
Three routes to tempt you out this Sunday, the weather is set to be calm and dry so a great chance to get out and ride in a group
Starting at 9am we have a 100km excursion North to Stoke Bruerne on mostly quiet roads, without any huge climbs to worry about, as easy April Grand Fondo opportunity!
At 10am we head out to Princes Risborough with one challenging climb in the middle and then back though Chesham and the Vale.
For those looking to build up some base miles also leaving at 10am is a 20 mile flat ride out to Totternhoe :
Please arrive at the Rose And Crown before the ride start time with a ride appropriate working bicycle, and a copy of your preferred route. We will endeavour to ride as groups, supporting riders to complete the rides together, look out for those behind you as well as keeping up with those in front!
