Midweek Ride 10th July

Wailun Chung leads this week’s Wednesday night ride. Meet at the Chiseldon Smokehouse ready for a 7.00pm start.

Midweek rides are usually about 15 miles / 2 hours long and use sections of the Ridgeway and Marlborough Downs. Riders of all abilities are welcome and no-one gets left behind.

You’ll need lights, a drink and a spare tube or repair kit. We may call in to the pub afterwards.

Friday Night Social

We’ll be holding another Friday Night Social at Croft on July the 5th.

If you’d like to help out with a bit of trail maintenance, we’ll be doing some work from 6.30 to 7.30pm. If not, you could always ride a lap or two!

After that, we’ll get the fire going and toast a few snacks. Hopefully, we’ll have our club shirts available again for you to try and buy. We’d love to see you there, whether you’re an old hand or attending your first event. See you there.

Up the Wansdyke

Graham Burgess leads this longer ride on Saturday 1st June. The route is not overly technical but around 42 miles long, with a shade under 3000ft of climbing – quite a bit on grass which is a bit energy sapping….
Start at Coate Water 9:00am. We’ll head off along Ridgeway, pick up Wansdyke Way at East Kennet, cross Devizes Road and climb up Cherhill to the monument from behind. From there, we’ll drop down to Avebury for a cuppa then back along Ridgeway to Coate.
