Monthly Meeting: Thursday 25 Nov 8pm

Our monthly round up of what is going on.  This month we will have a report from local group members who joined the mass ride to the COP26 meeting in Glasgow. Even doing part of it was quite an undertaking – and all for a good cause to gather ‘pledges’ to help us all contribute towards mitigating the effects of climate change. Do join in and hear all about the good, the bad and the soggy.

NB Bookings for the Christmas lunch (Sunday 12 December) must be received by 30 November. See the last newsletter for details of how to book. 

This meeting is open to members of the group and our local supporters only. If you attended any of the previous meetings there is no need to do anything and you will be sent the Zoom invite a few days before the meeting. If you wish to be added to the list, please send an email to alison.ewington@ntlworld.com.

Monthly Meeting: Thursday 28 Oct 8pm

Our monthly round up of what is going on.  This month we will have member David Sullivan to talk to us about a recent trip on Bromptons on the North Coast 500. A stunning – and probably challenging – route in the north of Scotland.

Rides and events: Hear how the first ride under the ‘new regime’ went. There will be a Christmas lunch on Sunday 12 December – find out how to book.

Monthly Meeting: Thursday 27 May 8pm

We will start with a brief round-up of what is happening locally and what is happening on the Campaign front.

Then, this month we have a visit from Toby Hopkins from the LCC office who is involved in the ‘Cycle Buddies’ scheme. This scheme connects people who want tips and guidance on urban cycling with more experienced cyclists. Some new, or returning, riders might need help with planning a safe route to work – or might need advice on improving their cycling technique. The LCC would like to have this scheme set up in Barnet so we need people to get involved. Come along and see what is involved and find out how you can help.

This meeting is open to members of the group and our local supporters only. If you attended any of the previous meetings there is no need to do anything and you will be sent the Zoom invite a few days before the meeting.

A special topic this month: “The Goldilocks Zone and how to stay there. Keeping warm and cool enough for cycling comfort.”

Our own Dr Helen Vecht will give us the lowdown on temperature control for comfortable cycling. Then we will have questions and answers – be prepared to join in. Got a favourite tip to pass on? Long Johns to wave at the camera? (Not wearing them please!).

We will hold our second online Zoom meeting next Thursday at 8pm. The main topic will be a discussion about the new cycle line which is being installed in Barnet. Have you tried it? what do you think about it? What has been the local reaction – from both cyclists and those that have yet to see the light? Take the chance this weekend to ride it and see what you think. Take some pics (good and bad bits, any problem areas) and send them to alison.ewington@ntlworld.com and we can share them at the meeting.
