Ride to Olney – Saturday 24th May

Philip Gray, our Chairman, will be leading this ride and writes:

This ride will explore some sites linked to the great evangelist and translator William Carey (1761-1834), including Hackleton, Piddington and Olney. In Olney, as well as a tea-stop, there will be an optional visit to the museum connected with two men who influenced Carey: Cowper and Newton (£4.50 entry).

This will be approximately 35 miles at a moderate pace. There are some moderate hills on the way back. If the weather remains dry we may use one short off-road section, so don’t bring your best racing bike (but if you do, there is a road alternative).

Meet at the Canoe Centre, Bedford Road, at 1.00 p.m.

If you are able to let Philip know if you are coming, that’s always appreciated. Tel 01604 720522 or chairman@ctc-northampton.org.uk
