Joy has made an excellent suggestion that we could enjoy a swim off the beach at Bognor during the lunch stop, so bring your kit if you want to join in!
Robert will be leading our annual President’s Ride, with elevenses at the Aldingbourne Centre and lunch at Bognor. There will be an off-road rough path section between elevenses and Lunch, but it is easily rode on 28C tyres.
The location of the tea stop will be a surprise, as is traditional. There will be no need to buy a ticket in advance this year, but Robert needs to know numbers so it would be appreciated if you would let him know as soon as possible that you plan to join in the tea. The afternoon tea per person cost is £4.50, payable at the venue, with options to buy additional eats.
About Saturday and Wednesday rides
Rides from Havant with stops for elevenses, lunch and sometimes tea. Average speed is 11-
If you'd prefer not to do the full day ride, you're welcome to join us as far as the elevenses stop and come back from there. Please make sure the ride leader knows that's what you intend to do so we can make sure someone is available to come back with you.
Larger rides split into multiple groups:
- A fast group that takes a longer and/or hillier route to the elevenses stop
- The rest of the main ride which takes a more direct route to the elevenses stop
- An elevenses ride comprised of riders going only to elevenses; the elevenses ride will have its own ride leader and might go to a different destination if the route to the main elevenses destination is long and/or hilly
The rides are informal and riders are free to join and leave the ride at various points. Some ride directly to the elevenses stop.
