Sunday 4th September’s Sunday Ride forecast, as we head to the Musette Cafe, see you at 9am at the Polish War Memorial (A40 Ruislip / Northolt)

WEATHER BAGEL FORECAST HERE

It’s a long overdue trip to the popular Musette cafe in Aldbury in this end of summer sortie and the weather should be dry, although a rain jacket in the back pocket is never a bad idea as we head into autumn.

As usual, there will be two routes to choose from and various speed groups to meet everyone’s needs.

Just turn up at 9am at the Polish war Memorial (A40 Ruislip / Northolt) with the route downloaded on your device. To get the route you need to sign up (free – see button above to subscribe) and then you’ll have acess to our routes via the members’ zone tab above (choose routes and rides).

We decide on the day as to how many groups we split into, it really depends on who turns up. The faster groups will usually do the longer of the two options with the aim of us all reaching coffee stops at similar times.

OPTION ONE: MUSETTE CAFE MALARKEY 88km

OPTION TWO: MUSETTE CAFE MORE MALARKEY 95km

Then on Sunday the 11th we are participating in Ian Oliver’s Chiltern Arrow from Chalfont, we will meet up at The Polish War Memorial at 9am as usual and ride over. You can drive to the start and meet us there as an alternative.

ROUTE FROM POLISH WAR MEMORIAL TO CHALFONT COMMUNITY CENTRE

CHILTERN ARROW ENTRY HERE (£11)

As we did in 2021, we are supporting Ian Oliver’s Willesden CC Chiltern Arrow event on September the 11th. again, we’ll ride to the start from the Polish War Memorial at 9am and Ian has agreed that we can start late if we arrive in Chalfont after the official start times – but please put West London Cycling on your entry please so that Ian knows you may be late, rather than a DNS.

For our regular Sunday Riders, the 50km option may suit you best as, combined with the ride out and back you will probably cover around 85km. Of course, you can drive to the start and meet us there if you like.

For those of you who like a challenge, the 100km route is fantastic, Kop Hill (as featured in the Tour of Britain a few years ago), Smalldean Lane with it’s 25% finale, Wigan’s lane up to Bledlow Ridge, Chipps Hill (Piddington), Winter Hill (Quarry Wood lane), and Harvest Lane …. a mouthwatering climbfest for the Anti-Gravitational Society

100km ROUTE

Ian puts on a decent event (or two) and we are looking forward to this one. Entry is £11, starting at Chalfont Community Centre and we’ll meet (as usual) at the Polish war Memorial at 9am.

We suggest we ride back in groups at the end, made up of finishers and formed on an Ad Hoc basis.
