Club Runs April – June

To make the clubruns work it is vital that regulars commit to lead a ride in the upcoming months. Pick your favourite route/cafe-stop and let me know a date. I can then publish a Spring Schedule.

Please also note the 0900 start time from this Sunday onwards. April will be a bit disrupted by the two opening club time trials (including Easter Sunday), and the Abingdon Festival on the 15th. . So club runs will probably be back to normal for Sun 22nd & 29th.

Volunteering – more info
Yes, I know it’s a dirty word, but club events don’t happen without members contributing, and the clubruns are no different. If we get enough volunteers I can publish a schedule with cafe destinations for the coming months. This has many benefits – for one, we’ll waste a lot less time on Sundays when we could be riding our bikes.
So what does this involve? Just pick a café and a route, and make sure you’re familiar enough with it to navigate a group there. Choose your own route, or pick one we’ve used before from the maps page – you can take us to a new cafe if you think we’ve neglected your favourite in the past!

If we keep getting good turnouts, we’ll aim to keep splitting the group. With destinations published in advance, more of us can swot up on the route and then be able to lead a splinter group if required. Everyone should benefit 🙂

So, get your diary out, then get in touch – either on the forum or email

Happy pedalling,
Matt

Freewheeling Contest – Sun 15th Jan

It’s the trophy anyone can win – mince pie consumption is a positive advantage! Usual clubrun start, with a gentle ride to the top of the course (which is a carefully-kept secret). Once the descending is done, a short ride to the cafe (probably Benson) will follow – the new champion can be lauded and doubtless accused of brick-based cheating.

Final 2011 Club-Run – Joint Ride with Abingdon

Sun 18th will be the last Sunday ride of 2011, and will be another joint ride with Abingdon Freewheelers. On past experience we should get a good turnout and split into ‘Pootle’ and ‘Fast Pootle’ groups.
So if you’re feeling a bit rusty, or are worried about the pace of Sunday rides, this might be a good week to give it a go!

Social Go(Pub)Ride – Next Friday (17th June)

Hi all,

Message from your Social Secretary 🙂

Next Friday we are planning a social ride out to a local pub. It will be a casual affair with a few steady miles and a central location to meet at the end of it. More details will follow, but please log onto the forum or add comments to this post if you are interested.

Time: 18:30 start
End: 8PM in Pub
* Times may change with following details.

Note, this will not be a long club run, but a chance to ride out to a pub and enjoy a summers evening pint!
PS – Please drink responsibly 🙂

Sunday 17th Club Run and Abingdon Freewheeling

A good turnout – close to 20 again – and a good ride, I thought.

A loop to the west of Kingston-Bag, then via BesselsLeigh & Radley to Abingdon Market Square. Just the one climb – the brutish one to Boars Hill.

Abingdon Market Square was heaving with cyclists of various experience, size, shape and steed – it was standing room only. I managed to dodge the bloke with the microphone and PA, but I think TonyS might have given a short interview.

Well done for Emily, Peter and the rest of Abingdon Freewheeling for getting so many people out on bikes, i heard there were over 200 on the various led rides, slightly up on 2010.

As i expected (with a cafe stop so close to home), we fragmented for the ride home. I led a plucky trio on a Tour De Didcot via Rowstock and Blewbury. another lot headed off over Culham Bridge, and the Scanlans took a brave party down the Sustrans route!

Hope you all had fun – be warned, I’ll be recruiting ride leaders for the next quarter, so check those diaries …

Club Run report for Sunday 27th March

The ride today was definitely split into two halves, with a very flat run out to Uffington followed by a left turn up and over the Downs via Blowingstone Hill / back down to Lectcombe Bassett+Regis / then back up to the cafe at the top of Court Hill Road.  Twelve of us made it to the cafe and after food & drink outside, came back to Didcot via Brightwalton, Farnborough, West Illsley and Chilton.
I’d like to post a link the route here now, but the Garmin website is refusing to upload at the moment.
The device itself says we did around 48 miles….
Simon, run leader for 27th March

Club Run 13th February Report

Eleven hardy souls braved the relentless drizzel and wind to head off to Henley by a slightly different route this morning. The ride took in Berins Hill en route and skirted the north of Reading before heading into Henley and coffee at Toad Hall. The return ride went up the hill to Fawley and round to Christmas common before heading back via Ewlme and Benson.

Sadly, we encountered four punctures mainly due to all the grit washed onto the road by the rain but I hope everyone enjoyed the ride.

The route can be found here:
