Re: A jersey for Fausto

I delivered a 1990s style yellow and green striped club top to Fausto Coffee yesterday and it was gratefully received.

Re: Disused railways take cyclists to less familiar places

I'd be interested in occasional rides like this. I have an idea for a ride from Newburn to Wheelbirks that mixes old railway tracks, byways and minor roads which might be of interest.

Re: Sunday C5 winter rides

Currently looking like there is a window of opportunity for a Sunday club ride this weekend without getting blown away!

Original plan for Allendale scaled back to Chollerford, which we didn't get to as planned a few weeks back. Route is 57 miles but can be reduced a bit if it proves to be too windy.

Re: Sunday C5 winter rides

In light of the weather forecast for this Sunday I'm cancelling the C5 ride

Re: Sunday C5 winter rides

Forecast for a welcome respite in the wind tomorrow but distinct chance of being wet instead! An interesting route to Bellingham planned, 34 miles to lunch and then 26 miles back (over the Ryals) or 30 miles back to avoid them! All weather permitting... if it is wet there will be a group decision on...

Re: Sunday C5 winter rides

This week's ride is to Warkworth. Round trip of 60 miles from Ponteland, taking in Shilbottle on the way there but coming generally straight back. Weather looks ok but expect a headwind back to Pont.

Re: Sunday C5 winter rides

This Sunday's C5 destination is Chollerford. I won't be out so someone will need to find their way there and back. Looks like it could be frosty to start with so be careful on the way there!

Re: Sunday C5 winter rides

I've posted the rides calendar up until end of March on the website calendar. The planned destinations are optimistic for good weather!

This Sunday is a 56 mile route with lunch in Rothbury, fairly flat in the morning and hilly on the return.

Re: Sunday C5 winter rides

Thanks Andy - I checked their website and it didn't mention any closures. Guess I'd better plan something else - Hexham looking likely.

Re: Sunday C5 winter rides

Tomorrow's ride is to Chollerford - planned route is 53 miles via Wark taking in a few less-used lanes and includes (as described to me some years ago) a few conky bits! Lanes will be mucky so don't forget your mudguards.

I'll get a full calendar of C5 rides posted in the next week.
