- 18 mile leisure ride – from £5
- Children’s ride – £2 (entry on the day only)
ENTRIES OPENING SOON!
Hoping for good weather, we will start from the main car park of Evesham College, off Davies Road, and head out towards Elmley Castle.
We will stop for refreshments at the Queen Elizabeth before heading back. The return route may change depending upon the weather but we will hopefully take the Saltway. Depending on the return route, this ride will be approx 13 miles.
Please dress appropriately for the weather (don’t forget your waterproofs), layer up in case its cold but remember you will still need a drink for on the bike.
Those of you who have ridden on a social ride with us in the last year would have more than likely met Wayne Evans.
Sadly, Wayne passed away recently and as a group we will certainly miss his ever present smile and encouragement to make it up that last hill that always seems to appear at the end of every ride.
With the blessings of his family, we are honoured to remember him by naming our Evesham Cyclefest 2019 King and Queen of the Hill Trophies after him.
After the wind a couple of weeks ago forced a route change, we’ll have another attempt – fingers crossed for better weather than last time! Starting from the Crown Meadow car park, we will head out past the football club and take the cycle path adjacent to the A46 before turning off towards Hinton. We’ll head down Haeslor Lane before heading into Charlton, we’ll head back via a different route using the bridleway that joins onto Red Lane and returning to Evesham via Hampton.
Mainly quiet local roads, cycle path adjacent to the A46 and some bridleways.
We will stop at Hampton Farm shop for coffee (and cake!) – please note this is quite late in the ride.
It is advisable to wear a helmet at all times when riding a bike. Please dress appropriately for the weather, wear sunscreen and bring a drink/snacks.
Less than 2 weeks to go for Evesham Cyclefest!
Make sure your bike is in great working order ahead the Evesham Cyclefest by coming along to our bike check evening at Evesham Adventure Playground this Saturday 31st August 2019 and then enjoy a screening of the film “Inspired to Ride” about the first Transamerica Race.
Bicycle checks are happening between 5pm and 7.30pm.
Film showing is between 7.30pm and 9pm.
“INSPIRED TO RIDE” follows a handful of cyclists as they race unsupported in the inaugural year of The Trans Am Bike Race. It’s the antithesis to events like Tour de France and Race Across America. There are no teams, no support vehicles, no special jerseys and not a dime in prize money. 4233 Miles. 10 States. Coast To Coast. Self-Supported.
As they battle lack of sleep, injuries and spirited competition, “INSPIRED TO RIDE” takes you on an invigorating road trip — amidst the jaw-dropping beauty of the TransAmerica Trail with its varied landscapes, intriguing locals and found stories which dot this path of discovery.
Featuring Mike Hall and Juliana Buhring plus many more “crazies”.
There is a suggested donation of £5 to Evesham Adventure Playground, our chosen charity for Evesham Cyclefest, for the bike check and/or film.
The address of Evesham Adventure Playground is:
You can sign up to the Facebook event here.
We would love to see you there!
Starting from the Market Square, this 23 mile ride takes us out of Evesham and over to the Lenches – so its a little ‘lumpy’.
Whilst the majority of the ride uses quiet local roads, there is a very small stretch on the A44 therefore this ride is not suitable for children or first timers.
There will be a coffee stop at Ellenden Farm shop so don’t forget money for a drink/snack.
