Channel to the Med, September 2020

Note below from Geoff Powner:

CHANNEL to the MEDITERRANEAN

I intend to cycle from Caen on the Channel to Nice on the Mediterranean during September 2020.

This will be a 14 day fully supported ride starting on the 4th September.

Anyone who might be interested in joining me contact me on 07775 576226 ( please leave a message if I don’t answer straight away) or speak to me on a Wednesday morning preferably by mid November.

Further information can be found at Peak-Tours.com, then go to Channel to the Med

How can you live a longer life?

What is the secret to living healthily into very old age? The latest edition of the BBC World Service CrowdScience programme reveals the secrets to extending our lifespans from Costa Rican centenarians and age researchers.

Spoiler alert: you won’t have to listen for many minutes to find out that we cyclists are probably doing most things just right already though, for male listeners at least, the smugness might be tempered by the realisation that we may have left it too late to have twelve children with our wives … and another eight with another woman.

Help Shape the Future of York’s Transport

You have until the end of September to give your views on transport in York.  York Civic Trust has just launched city-wide transport consultation to find out what residents and commuters think are the key issues in York and how to tackle them. See the poster below for more details.

York Rally Ride by YWW

From Andrew Richardson:
As last year, Wednesday Wheelers are organising a ride at York Rally on Saturday 22 June. I am leading the ride, using the same route as last year. However, this year, there is no ‘C ride’, so we could have more riders this time. It is being billed as a ‘Classic Ride’ and starts at 9.10 on the Knavesmire. The ride will return to the Knavesmire by 2pm at the latest, and there will be a coffee stop in Stamford Bridge.
If any members would like to come along to help guide the ‘visitors’ around the lanes, please let me know. I can send a copy of the route to you in advance.
