Remembrance Sunday – 12th November

7 11 2017

Please note the cafe destination for the Remembrance Sunday ride has been changed to Meadow Lea Farm, Mickle Trafford near Chester.  This will allow us to arrive in Guilden Sutton by 10.55am where those who wish can join the locals in a two minute silence to remember the members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty.   Following the ceremony we can ride on to the cafe

 

 

The first two-minute silence in Britain was held on 11 November 1919, when King George V asked the public to observe a silence at 11am –  one year after the end of World War One. He made the request so “the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead”.

IMPORTANT – RELIABILITY RIDE – slight route deviation

19 10 2017

There are roadworks in progress between Malpas and Whitchurch  on the B5395  which will require a slight deviation from our normal route on the 55 mile ride

As you come out of Malpas proceed to road closure and take the RIGHT TURN signposted Higher Wych – DO NOT follow any other diversion signs as these will try and take you back towards Hampton Heath

Follow this lane for approximately 1 km where there is a LEFT turn into Dodds Lane – signed WHITCHURCH – take this LEFT turn    DO NOT continue straight ahead!!!

At the end of Dodds Lane turn RIGHT to rejoin the B5395   into WHITCHURCH

The pictures show the map and the junctions

A Garmin track of the 55 mile route that you can upload this to your device  (not including the detour) is here
