Have a read here – there is lots of other good tips there too:

Thanks, and Happy New Year!

Saturday ride to Breakfast – meet 0930 @ Benson

Something new this Saturday – ride to a cafe for coffee/breakfast with other members.

See more details on the forum 

… but it’s very simple! No fixed route or start, just get to the caff with/without friends – ride 5 miles or 50, it’s upto you. Post here or on Facebook if you’re coming, and/or to arrange someone to ride with.



This proved very successful, with a dozen of us arriving by 5 different routes. We shall make this a weekly event – sticking with Benson meet to see how it goes. M

I know Steve well from Audax rides, so I’m hoping to get over there and watch history being made (and hopefully photobomb Steve’s interview with ITV … )

It’s a regular “club” TT, so non-members are  welcome to race Steve. The course is between Leighton Buzzard and MK: Info Here and here

You can follow his ride progress on Strava here
