Velos rides for Sunday April 2nd 2017

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.

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!

Saturday 10 am Tea Ride

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.
