Jacqueline Mountford-Green has asked me to post the following invitation:
“Could you please mention to members that I’ll be celebrating my birthday with a ride from York to Scarborough on 3rd March. Leaving York station at 9am. I’m booked into Travelodge St Nicholas Street and would love to see some of the WW’s. I’d really appreciate knowing who will be there [Contact Jacqueline at: firstname.lastname@example.org] .
“Meanwhile, I’m collecting miles in Sunny Spain. Will be home in Feb.”
“Every three years CYCLING UK organises a “Triennial Veterans Ride” throughout the country and in 2019 TEESSIDE CTC is again hosting an event.
“The ride is aimed at cyclists aged 50 years and over. It is not restricted to CYCLING UK members and is opened to all experienced cyclists. This is not a race but an enjoyable challenge. The aim is to complete a 100-mile ride in under 10 hours. A 100km (62 mile) ride route is offered as an alternative if you want a shorter ride. The rides start in Saltburn-by-the-Sea and takes in beautiful views and villages of North Yorkshire and South Cleveland.”
Further to last month’s post about plans to repair the cycle path alongside the A64, between Sim Balk Land and the “Sun” of the Solar System, I saw whilst out yesterday notices advising that, to enable this, the path will be closed for four weeks commencing Monday 7th January.
Murray Walsh-Banks and other Wednesday Wheelers are hoping to undertake a Lands End to John O’Groats tour over the first two weeks of September. Given sufficient numbers this will be organised by Peak Tours exclusively for the group. The trip will be based on the 14-day, 1000 mile (approx.) trip that they run several times a year, offering a variety of accommodation options and prices. To aid travel arrangements the trip includes transfers from Penzance to Lands End and from John O’Groats to Inverness, and they’ll even pick up bikes from York and return them at the end of the tour.
