LOITERERS NEWS FLASH:
Dear Knackered. We are all getting older. If your current lifestyle of drinking, gambling and fast women is proving too much, then I would suggest you forgo the fast women by not joining in on Margaret's rides. You know it makes sense. Regards Aunty Kitty

All rides start at 10.00 am from the Market Square in front of Uxbridge underground station unless otherwise stated. (ARCHIVED RIDES & EVENTS).

November 2017 - Please ensure your bike has working front and rear lights and a dinky little bell would not go amiss either.

Wed 22nd S Alec Martel Crown - Northolt Viaduct - Hanwell White House Miles of busy main road and also treacherous off road to a very expensive venue with a grumpy ride leader for roughly 25 miles - not your cup of tea? Tony's ride looks good and reasonably priced.
M Tony Cates St Andrews Church Centre - Stoke Poges Palmer Arms - Dorney Iver Golf Club Approx. 33 miles. Please note mine is more expensive than his above.
L John Macmillan Beaconsfield Services Polecat Inn - Prestwood (A little expensive for food but beer is from the local Malt Brewery.) As required, Amersham or Little Chalfont A few hills but NO OFFROAD
Sun 26th D Lawrie Hart
X Chris Kinsey Croxley Café - Croxley Queen's Head - Old Chesham Pennsylvanian - Rickmansworth A few sections of 'off-road' but mostly tarmac. The Queen's head is currently closed for refurbishment but the management have assured me that they will re-open on the 23rd In the event that they are still closed alternative dining arrangements in Chesham will be sorted.

M Alec Martel No morning stop in order to maximise time at lunch venue. Turtle Bay - Staines If required WINTER SUNSHINE RIDE Lunch venue is a Caribbean chain restaurant and prices reflect this. MENU If you are not keen on spicy food, rum based cocktails, Red Stripe beer or reggae/ska music playing in the background then this ride is probably not for you.
