Saturday Special - 21st July 2018

Hi, I understand from some committee members that this coming Saturday's special is to Grafham Water.  I hope I am not jumping the gun.

I was asked to see if I could suggest a shorter router as the 71 miles is possibly off putting to some.  I have done my best but still cannot get it under 60 miles.  It includes a new section of cycle path through St Neots allowing the avoidance of the town centre in crossing the river ouse.

It is also quite flat for the distance - https://www.strava.com/routes/14361164

If the old route is preferred I am ok, fyi the road to Langford is now fully open so there is no restrictions through there.

Re: Saturday Special - 21st July 2018

Thanks for that Darren. Dependent on who's out I guess there is no reason why we can't have one group riding the shorter route and one the longer. The longer route is here https://www.strava.com/routes/2239579

As usual it will be an 8am start from Mica. If you plan to join en route do post so we know to look out for you. Pace will be 15 mph and no one - not even Jo - left behind.

I will be joining you on Saturday, and will meet you at the School in Bassingbourn around 8.15am as usual.

Re: Saturday Special - 21st July 2018

I will be coming - yay - happy with either route.

If everyone is going on the "official" route I will meet you between Hinxworth and Ashwell I will ride in that general direction.

If anyone wants to do the alternative I will happily ride that group to guide for some of it. I will meet in Wrestlingworth at the Chequers.

Either way will be waiting about 8:40.

You can let me know with a text/whatsapp in the morning when you want me to go.

Re: Saturday Special - 21st July 2018

If you promise not to drop me (!) Paul and I will be coming, meeting at Mica. Either route is fine, happy to help guide the shorter one if needed.
If you’ve not done a Saturday Special before - give it a go! Please post if you’re coming so we know to look out for you. You’ll be supported.

Re: Saturday Special - 21st July 2018

Matt - yes see you at co-op 7:55 - looks like a big group - looking forward to sausage roll, cake, ice-cream and coffee :-) no wonder I felt bad on the way back last time.
