Cruisers Cheshire Century – Sunday 17th May

We’re planning on having a “little” adventure on Sunday 17th May – so save the date if you’re interested.

This would be a 100 mile ride up into Cheshire & back, as far north as Beeston Castle – we’ve already got a basic route outlined (a variation on the one inherited from the club’s President Martin Beardwell) – it’s currently flat to undulating, but we’ll do some more work on it to make it as flat as possible & over decent roads.

I’ve already had a provisional Yes to the ride & date making 10 of us so far: me, Nick, Reha, Malcolm, Mark, Steve K., Bill, Matt, Jackie & Jackie’s friend (Steve H. would be a Yes, but unfortunately on holiday).

The ride will be in much the same vein as a normal Sunday Cruisers ride, but obviously a tad longer……..: start at 8am; plan based on an average of 10.5 to 11 mph (i.e. at the top end of Sunday C-ride speed); as the majority of the route will be flat, the actual speed could be a bit higher than this, but only if everyone’s comfortable; cut down on the numerous ad-hoc stops to avoid “wasting” time; still have scheduled stops – mid-morning (possibly a sandwich stop?), lunch (possibly pre-ordered?) & afternoon tea & cake; aiming to get back into Shrewsbury for before 8p.m.

Note: Everyone’s welcome to come along, but please bear in mind that the Cruisers don’t go quite as fast as the other groups, so you’d need to be relaxed about this.

    Should you accept my offer my mobile number is 07929 085552 but I confess it’s not glued to my body like many are (of course would be whilst your jaunt is taking place).

    100 miles too far for me but having a Thule 2-bike carrier fixed to my car and also the capability of taking a couple of passengers I’d be happy to collect and return to Shrewsbury breakdowns or riders and bike unable to complete your course.
    Contact could be made by mobile phone.
    Just a suggestion.
