Evening All,

I have got a voucher for a tour of Hook Norton's brewery somewhere. I'll have a rummage if anyone wants it.

It's about 50m from me to the Pear Tree, which is just my sort of distance. The trouble is with the 50m back again which I fear is not.

Even so, still two weeks to get some practice in. :roll:

Ken


You are more than welcome to tag along Ken. I was thinking of 3 hours down and the same back, so 17 ish average.

:o
17mph is more like my max than my average. If that's what you've got in mind, I may follow in the illustrious wheel tracks of Maurice Garin and tackle the return stretch by train.

Daj, When I said 50m, I meant 50 miles.

Usually I get told about arse and gear during and after the ride, but not before. :D

That is a cunning ruse about using the car. :idea: Ideally, I could hide it behind the pub, ride a lap of the block and claim an average of 17mph. :idea:

Seriously though, I will be cheating somehow because I doubt I'm up for the century.

Driving to Dave's would be a good option then, given the excellent parking and an outside chance of a cuppa before we set off :)

The ride over tp Hooky from Stow will be nice and undulating without any real stonking hills. Round trip will be about a 50-60 mile ride.

I'll still be cycling over from Chelters though in case any one fancies a longer ride from there (though the ride up to Stow is a bit tough).
