Another Peterborough weekend 11th / 12th August

I’m leading a cycling weekend in Peterborough for the Ealing LCC group on the weekend of 11th / 12th August. If you missed out on the Barnet Cyclists weekends in Peterborough in 2014 and 2016 or would like to repeat some of the rides, you would be most welcome to join us.  The exact details still have to be finalised but we will probably go to Little Gidding on the Saturday and Fotheringhay on the Sunday.

For further information, please contact Charles Harvey.

Thursday 28th June Monthly Meeting – Cycle clothing

After the normal ‘business’ meeting and coffee we will have a ‘show and tell’ about our favourite bits of cycle clothing. What are your favourite items? What is worth spending more for? Are you Rapha or Aldi? Bring your best bits along to talk about. Or just come with questions about what you need advice on.   All welcome.

Meet: 8pm Carey Hall, Trinity Church, Nether Street, North Finchley N12

 

Sunday 24th June: East Finchley Festival, Cherry Tree Woods, East Finchley

We will have an information stall at this popular local festival – plus Barnet Council is providing a cycle mechanic to do Dr Bike safety checks and do minor repairs. So bring your bike along for a check – and tell your friends.  The mechanic will be there between 1-4pm.  Helpers will also be needed to man the stall and talk to visitors about cycling locally and encourge them to join the LCC.

If you can help on the day please contact Alison –details below.

Sunday 17th June: change of route

We had planned this to be the postponed Zeppelin ride, however, due to illness, Charles is unable to lead this ride. We will try to reschedule the ride for later in the year.  BUT DO NOT DESPAIR!  There will be another ride on this day – routes and leaders are being investigated and we will publish details in the next few days.  The meeting points and times stay the same – as below.  Do keep an eye on the website for details.

Prudential Ride London 100

Message from Barnet Cyclist Talia Ross:
St John’s Hospice has 10 spare places for the Prudential Ride London 100 on Sunday 29th July. They will only go to waste if they are unused, so there is no minimum amount of money to raise, although any sponsorship would be appreciated. However, there will be publicity photos taken. The deadline for signing up is tight so, if you are interested, do email  Romaine Maret at the St John’s Fundraising team: romaine.maret@hje.org.uk

Thursday 31st May Monthly Meeting – Bike maintenance session.

After the normal ‘business’ meeting and coffee we will have a bit of hands on maintenance.  Bring your bike along if you have a question about how to fix something or how something works.  Or if you have questions to raise in advance email Alison on the address below.   All welcome.
