Rides for the week beginning 16th February 2020


  1. HS2 construction is currently going ahead in Warwickshire and is resulting in road closures that we don’t always know about in advance of our rides, causing us to divert at the last minute.  May I ask leaders and other riders to respect instructions given to us by the workforce – you may not believe arguments about looking after our safety, but the “guards” are also charged with preserving the security of the worksite.
  2. The next Tuesday night Clubroom Show is on 18th February and is entitled “Return to Yorkshire”.  Dave Hearn will tell us about the Cycling World Championships and a cycle tour to Yorkshire. The show will start at 2000hrs in The Friends Meeting House, Hill Street, Coventry and is remarkably good value at £1.50.  The full programme can be downloaded from our website.
  3. The full programme of Sunday and Tuesday rides can be viewed and downloaded from our website. 
  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.
