The season of goodwill, vacation, family, and cycling escape is upon us!
Here are a few rides you may be interested in checking your availability for – now long standing traditions:
Last Tuesday of the Year
Tuesday 20th December – 1830hrs Saints, Meliden. A low key, and well attended event – even for those who do not usually manage to make the Tuesday night rides – curiously ;) Starting off at the usual time of 1830hrs, and heading out for a short hour and a half’s ride before stopping at the Plough or Swan in St. Asaph. Come join us for the ride, or the social afterwards.
Mince Pie Bimble
Saturday, Christmas Eve, 24th December – 1000hrs Rhuddlan Nature Reserve. This is a charity event that will cost you £5 which will go to St. Kentigern Hospice. Traditionally this will involve a ride of two groups – bimble and those surprised at how fast a bimble can be! Both groups head around in a loop and back to Trefnant for tea, coffee, mulled wine and mince pies. Nom nom nom.
Wednesday 28th December – 1300hrs at Saints, Meliden, or 1330hrs at Waen Gate. The ride will head down the Waen, and return to the New Inn Dyserth for around 1600hrs. After warming back up, home to get changed and regroup at Chili Pink, Rhyl at 2000hrs for more festivities. Members are welcome to come and join in for any part or all of the day.
Sunday 1st January 2017 – The Brass Monkey Time Trial – is a prestigious low key event for the highly coveted trophy. More realistically – its a jolly around the 9 mile circuit not taking yourself too seriously in fancy dress after a week of excess. Come join in… slowest times of the year… membership required however hangover optional. See the VC Melyd & Rhyl CC Time trial FB page for answers to further questions.
“The Lon Las Loonies would like to invite you to our annual charity Santa ride on the 27th December in aid of Luke Davies. The ride is a gentle 15 miles leaving from Archies Bar in Prestatyn at 11am. All monies raised will go directly to Luke. The price is £10 per rider. Can you please let me know if any of your riders would like to join in. We all dress in Santa suits”
