The Peloton: Interclub ride #2

Hargroves Cycling Club have arranged yet another interclub group ride to get all the local clubs riding their bikes together.

The last ride was very well organised and extremely well attended - this is not a ride to miss!

This is a brilliant opportunity to mingle with local clubs and to get to know all the cyclists in and around the New Forest and Southampton area.

The ride will be on the 2nd September and will start at 8:30 AM from the Hargroves shop for a ~50 mile ride, including a coffee stop.

It would be brilliant if we could get lots of members along to this, to help build the local cycling community!

EDIT - 4/6/18 - A note from the organisers:

Further to the Incredible interest in the event I thought best to try and get a good count of people attending. Therefore I have had our club friend Steve Gordon set up a simple online registration form. It takes about 20 seconds to complete and just asks for name, email and club in drop down boxes. The event is all free and open to anyone even if your not members of the listed clubs.

The registration site is : hccc.stevegordon.co.uk

All info will be deleted after event. I just felt I need to collate numbers so I can forwarn the cafe and plan the route/ride groups.

3C Rides to france - Le Tour!

One of our members Ant Gahr is planning a trip down to Paris to watch the last stage of this years Tour de France and is looking for members to join him. The group will be cycle touring/bike packing (trip is open to both roadies and off roaders) and the plan is to leave from the Hythe shop on Thursday 20 July to cycle to Portsmouth, to catch the overnight ferry to Le Havre.

The group will then spend the next two days cycling down to the outskirts Paris (roughly following the river Seine), and spend Sunday watching the Tour de France final stage. On Monday, they will leave Paris and spend the next three days cycling back to Le Havre (via a different route), for the return ferry to Portsmouth on Wednesday 26 July.

Ant has used the proposed routes several times in the past which takes in the quiet roads of rural France (they are tried and tested). You will be staying in small rural campsites en-route and at the larger Camping International Maisons-Laffitte in the outskirts of Paris. Maximum distances in any day will be no more than 70 miles (most days are shorter than this) at a pace of approximately 13MPH. Time allows for plenty of stops during each day.

If you are interested in joining Ant, please contact him via WhatsApp, Facebook, e-mail (anthonygahr@uk2.net), or catch him at any Tuesday evening ride.

He would like to know if you are interested by 14 March 2017, so that accommodation and ferry can be booked and costs finalised.

Exciting!!!
