Club Ride Diary

Tewkesbury Outing

A clean dozen asembled with bikes of equal variety under cloudless sky in Kings Square and were soon heading briskly for Woolridge slopes before seeking the shady lanes of Murrell's End. Crossing the Leadon for the first time before the seldom travelled Middletown...

Headwinds to Wickwar

Perhaps an earlier start deterred some but only four takers left Kings Square at 8:30. Thsi was soon whittled down to three as a brisk headwind asserted some influence. The remaining trio pressed on through Tuffley and the lanes of Haresfield on their way to Kings...

Wet in Drybrook

  Thirteen riders left the Square on a cloudy but warm morning. The dangerous turn into Over Farm was negotiated and led to the Highnam cycle track. Rather than taking the climb up Lassington Hill the leader took the group through the flat Maidenhall road....

Wet morning in the Forest

Those that spent the morning in Gloucester will find it hard to believe that it was wet all morning in the Forest. However, the rain was warm enough that capes were not required. Six riders set off from King's Square, and headed to Flaxley, where my cycle computer...

Some Forest Gravel on club ride

10 riders started from the Square on a beautiful morning, on what would turn out to be one of the hottest day of the year so far, destination Cinderford which is a bit difficult to get to within the A category... Well-used routes were taken to Tibberton via Over Farm...

Baking hot in Wales

After some confusion with transport, 4 riders left Monmouth on our motor assisted ride. The route from Monmouth over to Abergavenny with its undulations and views over to Sugar Loaf was excellent and really enjoyable. However, the main reason for the ride was the...

Sunday rides 3rd July

July’s rides began in the sunshine with several groups riding at different speeds. The Training Ride had thirteen participants on a loop around Bredon Hill. The pace was fast and furious again, averaging over 21 mph for the 50 + miles. Everyone worked hard to try and...

Four Fords

Finding the Ilmington café is no longer open on Sundays, and the Mickleton café unwilling to take more than 4 people at a time, it was decided to head for Chipping Campden, which turned out to be just fine! Eight started out at 8am and made the most of the stiff tail...

Wind was the story of the day

Five riders left King's Square and unusually the girls outnumbered the boys. With the stiff tailwind, we made fast progress to Winchcombe, picking up an extra rider in Staverton, and observing the motorbike festival at Prescott Hill Climb on the way. Soudley Castle...
