Anyone up for a ride in a couple of weeks? Start out of Mildenhall going to Bury St Edmunds and back.
Will Cook did this ride last Sunday with a couple of others and I said I'd like to go over and join him to have a ride out and see if we can get more riders to join us.
Planned start time is 09.00 and the route is about 40 miles and I'm sure we could find somewhere for food afterwards if people want to do something.

Ok, I'd planned on staging from my house but it looks like the turn outs more than I expected. Jubilee field is about a half mile from the house and has parking for as many as we need at no fee. Here's to postcode for the meeting point for us 40 milers. Just park down by the field because the upper part of the car park by Sainsbury has a time limit. I'll be there by 0840. I'm doing the map for the 40 milers as well this morning, I'll post it in a bit.

This Sunday is the first BHPC event of the year at Hillingdon. 
All of our events are listed here:  http://www.bhpc.org.uk/Events/2015.aspx" rel="nofollow - http://www.bhpc.org.uk/Events/2015.aspx

Probably a good idea to try to avoid these if possible for any other events you're promoting on this forum as a lot of us will be at these events. 

Have a good ride!

Looks like we're at it again this Sunday. That would be Hoarder, myself, and hopefully Davyboy. Looks like we may get a little wet so govern yourself accordingly. As always the more the merrier, please feel free to join us. If you have any questions just ask. I will be riding back to Mildenhall after we reach point B on the map which is another 6 miles. This will make the entire ride roughly 31miles if you return to Angels Café, 23 miles point A to B. I will happily see anyone back to Angels Café if they drive in for the ride.

Another Sunday ride in the books. Wasn't great weather but saying that we didn't get wet so I'd say we came out on top. We met up at Angels Café in Mildenhall, after some gadget talk we hit the road looking to lay came to a new underpass crossing the A11 in the name of Recumbent riders everywhere. Jon and I figured we were the first bent riders to use it based off the limited number in the area. In the process of claiming the underpass we found a lovely stretch of road we hadn't used before. Which will be going on the short list for our unplanned Imperial century ride. Brian showed us what his Evo K could really do on one of our climbs, it was very impressive. Our ride wasn't without calamity though, poor Brian had to adjust a chain tube and repair A flat. Had a fair few laughs from start to finish so I'd say a great ride. Thanks Hoarder and Brian.

We're off again. Route is being worked but meeting point and time are set. I would expect 30 to 40 miles for the route though. Soon as Jon gets a route sorted I'll post a map link. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Packing a sandwich or some other life sustaining treat of your choosing may not be such a bad idea. I'm sure we might pass a place to stop and grab some tea and cake but nothing is planned so govern yourself accordingly.

Sunday group ride was excellent. We had Jon and Dave on Performers, Brian in his Evo-k and me bringing up the rear on the PDQ.
41.45 miles out to Thetford forest and back to civilisation. Some of the route was uncharted territory for all of us but David. We even found 5 miles of newly laid blacktop, what a treat. I got a little excited in the video.
Jon hit his metric century, so congrats to him for checkING that box
