London to Cambridge – 2nd Edition

Posted on Sunday 27 April 2008 by Ken Peters

Last year when I did this ride we were blessed with glorious spring sunshine but this was not to be repeated. OK, well that is what the weather forecast said. I had spent the whole of the week leading up to the ride looking at forecasts that said rain and was expecting the worse. Others were similarly afflicted by the impending deluge so I lost a few who had expected to ride. Nevertheless there were 10 hardy souls who were prepared to join me and defy the elements.

Once we’d extricated ourselves from this melee and travelled down to Lewes we were found to have a team of seven, and, joyously, nobody had turned up without knobblies.

Easter Tour 2008

Posted on Saturday 5 April 2008 by John Aizlewood

Tuesday 18th March

DK rode out to Jordans YH from London to join the four (PL,JA,BoR,PK) who had stayed there overnight. We made it as far as Beaconsfield before the first coffee stop, then up and down the Chilterns for lunch at Bledlow at the foot of the escarpment. An afternoon ride along the old railway track to Thame, and cycle route 57 into Oxford. The hostel was filled with foreign school parties, so we retreated to one of Inspector Morse’s favourite pubs. 67km more »
