Rides in July and August

Summer is here at last, and the rides lists for July and August are now available.

Sunday all-day ride, 8 May 2011

Our rides over the summer cover a good mix of routes and distances, and revisit a few neglected destinations. We've included a few bring-your-own (picnic) lunches to take advantage of the summer weather.

July begins with a special Sunday all-day ride on Sunday 3rd July to Cavendish to meet up with Suffolk CTC. On Sunday 17th July we visit the Harold-Odell Country Park in Bedfordshire. And on Sunday 28th August we have our annual club ride to Mildenhall Cycle rally.

On Sunday afternoons we will also be trying out a new idea, with Sunday afternoon "improvers" rides on 10th and 24th July. These are intended to be a shorter, slower ride that goes in parallel with the normal Sunday afternoon ride. If you like our gentle Saturday morning rides and are looking for the next step up in distance, then these may be for you.

There are couple of changes to our Thursday all-day rides over the summer - make sure you don't get caught out! The ride on Thursday 21th July has been moved to Wednesday 20th so that we can visit Saling Hall gardens, which is only open on Wednesdays and is recommended for garden lovers. And on Thursday 18th August the ride will be car assisted and will meet up with the CTC Birthday rides in Framlingham.

We will be continuing with the Saturday morning introductory rides on the first and third Saturdays of each month (we'll add these to the rides lists soon).

Last but not least, the Wednesday evening rides will continue until the end of August. These rides are going a bit further in July to take advantage of the lovely long evenings.
