  2. The full programme of Sunday and Tuesday rides can be viewed and downloaded from our website. 
  3. We are keen to have more feedback from our members on their experiences with what we organise in the Club. To progress this a Customer Feedback form has been added to the main menu of our website called ‘Feedback’.  It would be great if you could let us know what you are thinking.
  4. This year there will be another Ladies Weekend Tour, from 26th-28th June 2020. We hope to head south to take in parts of Oxfordshire and Worcestershire, covering 40-50 miles each day. Accommodation could be at Premier inn /Travelodge in Banbury and Evesham and we will book early to get good prices. The route leads through some gorgeous countryside, pretty villages and may include a stop at Stratford-on-Avon. Please let Vicky Palethorpe know if you are interested.
  5. Alan Jelley is organising a tour to Suffolk and Norfolk from 3rd-11th June 2020. Options include the use of public transport to clip off a few days at either end of the tour.. The tour is now open for bookings and full details can be found on our website.
