• A bit different from usual tomorrow. Club president, John Summerhayes, is leading the traditional 'Summerhayes Summer Saunter' August Bank Holiday ride. Rather than riding down to the south coast and getting a train back, it has been decided to avoid the vagaries of the current Southern Rail service and do a car-assisted ride instead. John can squeeze up to five people and bikes into his car - if you're going, meet at the Town Hall (usual place: Forest Road, Walthamstow) at 8:45am. The plan is to drive up to the race HQ at Ugley (near Stansted Airport) ready to start a long social ride heading out towards Maldon and back.

    The fast group/groups are divided tomorrow. Some of the very fastest are heading out at stupid o'clock in the morning on the 'Dad's club' ride (needing to get back very early for family duties). That leaves the rest of us probably going at a slightly more reasonable pace (think 18mph, instead of last week's >19mph). As one member has his engagement party to get back for, this ride is going to be a bit shorter than usual: just 45 miles with the aim of being back before 12pm. No cafe stop this week. Meet at the town hall at 9:00am. Route here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/16170664
