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!

Here we are on the eve of Il Lombardia, the race of the falling leaves. Everyone is hanging out their leg warmers hoping that they will be filled by father cycling with an explosive race and Sagan’s swan song with Tinkoff. But will there be nothing left to eat on boxing Lombardia but stale energy bars and bitter regret. Only time will tell. Luckily however the race organisers for tomorrow’s tea ride have opted out of 4500m of climbing around lake como and will instead be taking in the scenic lanes of Buckinghamshire.
Favourites for first back at the pub include Castlemead Dave and Diego Ulissi.
Meet at the Rose and Crown with raincoats and tea and cake funds for more cycling adventures.
