2021 Cycling

Augustclick for this month's league table

Wheatsheaf, Thurcaston

Embers made an early start this week to beat the forecast rain. The nine Embers cycling from Kirby Muxloe, through Bradgate and Swithland Woods to the Whatsheaf at Thurcaston took the short route home and everyone managed to time their ride well.

The many Embers who cycled this week covered miles between them.

Elms, Lutterworth

Whether riding on a different day and route, many Embers managed to cycled another miles.

Absence is only permitted with a note from your mum. Here is the one excusing Carol from our Thirsty exertions.

We will expect an A+ homework grade ... and will check the handwriting against the note!

Roebuck, Market Harborough

Twians cycled the Lincolnshire Wolds on Wednesday and on Thursday Velo John and Derek explored the roads around Daventry. Nine Embers set off along the canal through Foxton but needed to take a detour to avoid arriving at the pub twurly.

In total many riders cycled miles this week.

Moorhen, Peterborough

This week many Embers have cycled miles on their top days.

Today I undertook a 65 mile charity dawn cycle ride around East Leicestershire & Rutland organised by the Cradock Arms cycling club, to raise funds to purchase a Defibrillator, which will be located at the pub.

It was early start at 5.30am from the pub which is located in Knighton, Leicester. It was a challenging ride, but I was determined to complete the ride in memory of my brothers Desmond, Gary and our grandfather Reg.
