sorry about recent inactivity – all work (and hockey) and not enough play!
spring is here and we start to brush cobwebs off bikes and squeeze back into the lycra (a lovely mental image) how can a person’s mind not turn to the tour de wight from the 28th – 30th may
so far we have 29 booked in for the ride. we also have an driver par excellence isobel making a glorious return to the fold.
so if you haven’t booked in yet then please visit booking as we need to let the youth hostel have a rough idea of numbers.
If you need more details of the ride and would like to invite others then please go to this page as we are always keen to have new people join in.
for any who are concerned about how long/hard the cycling will be, every day will have easier and harder routes and there will be short cuts, pubs and lots of cafes to stop at.
lucas has emailed through asking if any people are up for doing a little route mapping ride before the event – possibly over two days – if you are keen can you drop me an email even if you can’t make the full ride.
