Semi-retired and relatively new to road-bike cycling - but trying hard to improve.

    Hi @TomGreatorex. I'll join you at Chackmore as it will save me riding into town and back out again.

    A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY

    Hi, John Hamilton and myself are planning a day out in the Cotswolds on the Glorious 12th - but we won't be shooting grouse. No, we'll be riding our bikes around some of the lovely back roads, stopping off at a nice coffee shop and finishing up at a brewery!

    The route starts, and finishes, at The Hook Norton Brewery, stopping off at the Illmington Community Cafe for coffee. I've tried to keep the route reasonably flat but it is the Cotswolds so there will be some lovely hills to climb. The proposed route is as follows : https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course­/272073403

    As regards pace John and myself are aiming for a good B ride standard but I'm sure the terrain will be the major factor in determining our actual speed.

    The plan is to drive to Hook Norton Brewery and park our cars there for the day. We'll then complete the ride and have some (probably very) late lunch at the Brewery Restaurant.

    The plan isn't set in stone so if you have any thoughts, comments or ideas to contribute then please do let me know. But, if you are interested then please hit the attending button, put the date in your diary and look out for more details over the coming weeks.

    Hi @PaulW. I'll join the ride but please don't worry if I drop off at any point as the hills will be a challenge. I want to do as much riding as I can but it's going to be a slow process rebuilding my strength.

    @lizcanyon great to see somebody puts some thought and creativity into this side of the club. Personally, I like the idea of awaydays.

    Hi, I will join the ride but don't worry if I drop at any time as my batteries aren't fully re-charged yet - but the only way to recharge them properly is to keep riding. So, I'll do my best and please save me some cake if I'm last getting to the coffee stop.
