Prudential Ride London – places!

Thinking forward to glorious summer cycling days, perhaps you’ve just decided you want a challenge. Joe Ward writes…. We have places available in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 at a discounted rate for team entries – the bigger the team the bigger the discount. We would very much appreciate your support:  http://www.victa.org.uk/ridelondon-team-entries/ I write on behalf of VICTA, a national charity in the UK that works to empower children and young adults who are blind or partially sighted. We work hard to help our youngsters question limiting presumptions they might have, helping them to view themselves and their potential in a new way. We want them to be able to make a difference to their own lives. Help us to help more blind children. Kind regards  Joe Ward Fundraising Manager www.victa.org.uk

The Bicycle Icycle – Will It Happen?

In case you’d somehow overlooked the fact, it’s our First Event of the Year tomorrow and the weather isn’t looking promising from a cycling point of view. I don’t want to cancel it yet because all the forecasts say something different and there might be someone out there unafraid of the zero temperatures. If the snow doesn’t hit us over night, there’s still a possibility that the roads will be dry, but it’s important to bear in mind the effects of cold on the accumulated choss which covers copious sections of the route. It really was very dirty out there yesterday when I rode the full route in fine conditions. My reluctant recommendation would be not to ride the Icycle tomorrow. If anyone chooses to ride and s/he comes to grief, then they must accept the fact that they chose to ride against my recommendation; I will not be held

Ladies cycling jersey

It has been pointed out that the only ladies jersey available is the sport fit, which is described as unisex, and therefore may well not be ideal for ladies. I have therefore added another item to the list of clothing available, being:- Ladies short sleeve pro fit jersey, 3/4 zip  Price £43  Sizes S1 to S10 (see Owayo website for full details) The pro fit is more expensive than the sport fit, but I have applied a similar level of discount.  The pro fit is also a more snug fit, we have had one previous order for this item (in 2015), at size S7, and if you are concerned about sizing I can put you in touch with that purchaser, if you e-mail me to let me know. If you wish to order this item, please e-mail me by the deadline, this Sunday, 19th November. John Murdoch
