Longer Club Ride with cake stop Sunday 26th March

This coming Sunday I would like to take the club ride on a slightly longer ride involving a cake stop. Sussex Nomads CC will be holding a ‘pop-up’ cafe at Bushovel & Wiston Village Hall, just of the A243 Steyning Road, BN44 3DD. It will be open from 1000 – 1330.

All the cakes are homemade and the portions are generous, to say the least!

The purpose of this event is to raise money for the charity ‘Dreamflight’. This is Derek Middlehurst of Sussex Nomads chosen charity for the 2017 Virgin London Marathon so please bring a couple of pounds along.

Please contact the ride leader Charlie Booth if you have any questions – 07434 691462

Riders must have parental permission to ride. Parents are encouraged to come along.

Meet at the track ready to leave at 10.00am. I have a planned route of 43 miles for this Sunday – allow 3 to 4 hours for return although we could be back sooner if we have a consensus on the day.

The rides are not coached sessions and there is not an organiser with legal responsibility for other riders. A club ride is simply a group of riders on a joint excursion on the open road which may include sections on busy roads and descents. Riders participate at their own risk and are expected to obey the Highway Code at all times.

Please ensure your bikes are road worthy this includes using tyres that are not worn or suffering cuts and nicks. COME FULLY CLOTHED FOR  COLDER WEATHER or you will not be welcome to ride. Bad weather cancellations will be posted on the website by 9am

Club Road Ride Sunday 19th March

Club road rides continue on Sunday 19th March for riders aged 12 and older.  Please contact the ride leader Charlie Booth if you have any questions – 07434 691462

Riders must have parental permission to ride. Parents are encouraged to come along.

The route will be decided on the day and be tailored for all abilities.

Meet at the track ready to leave at 10.00am for a two hour ride though note that we commonly return at 12.30 or after. There will be no charge  but the nature of these rides is that a higher level of self-sufficiency is required. This means riders should be capable of safe return if they become separated from the group and that suitable clothing and equipment are used. Thus there should be no new participants without prior agreement.

Unfortunately, due to work commitments I can’t lead a ride on Sunday. – Sorry

Return to Gumber Bothy – 9th -10th September

After a break of seven years we are finally returning to Gumber Bothy for an end of summer bunkbarn camping trip.

Gumber Bothy, up on the South Downs near Bignor, is a fantastic place to spend the night and we have been lucky enough to secure exclusive access for PPYCC. Check out the website

https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/slindon-estate/features/slindon-estate-has-a-converted-barn-and-campsite

Just like in 2010 the idea is to arrive on bike by cycling along the South Downs Way; But all are welcome however you arrive.

This trip is only in the planning stage at present so I will not taking bookings until later but feel free to email me any questions – charlie@ppycc.org.uk . After consulation a full itinerary and plan will eventually be formulated to suit all.

Keep that weekend free!!!
