RIDE REMINDER: Sunday 18th August St Albans Abbey

The  plan this month is to amble north to St Albans to visit the Abbey and see its new Welcome Centre https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-48621049. This will be a relaxed pace ride – but not necessarily a short ride (about 30 miles all in). After leaving The Spires we will ride the 10 miles to St Albans without a coffee stop. This will allow for an early lunch at one of the many eating places in the centre of St Albans. The group will then go on to visit the new Abbey centre.  Riding back, there will be a stop for afternoon tea along the way.

Meet: 10.00am Tally Ho, North Finchley N12 or 10.30am outside Waitrose, The Spires, Barnet – Stapylton Road entrance, by the bandstand

Ride Leader: Ian Ollier 0208 440 5943

NB No indoor meeting in August. The next meeting is Thursday 26thSeptember.

Evening ride cancelled -Friday 9th Aug. A bit more info……

Hello

to clarify, the decision to cancel the ride is due to the weather forecast for Friday evening – high winds and rain. The committee feel it could be unsafe and we do not want to encourage members to take unnecessary risks.
