Start time: 9.30 a.m.
Meeting point: Hunsbury Hill library, Overslade Close, East Hunsbury NN4 0RZ

Time Expected Back: Around 1.00pm
We have two rides on Saturday, depending on the cyclists joining on the day, starting at 9.30am from East Hunsbury Library.
The weather on Saturday looks to be reasonably dry, possibly a light shower or two, and around 13c to 15c, so not too bad.
The Brisk Ride is 43 miles at a pace of around 15 mph, with the Moderate Ride possibly being a self led group, 36 miles, depending on the riders turning up, and will be around 12 mph. The cake stop will be at Harley Equestrian Centre, at around 25 (or 18) miles which was checked out by Giles and apparently offers excellent bacon and egg sandwiches.
Both routes essentially follow a similar route to the West of Northampton, taking in Pattishall and Preston Capes before the coffee stop near Woodford Halse. The Brisks will enjoy the extra miles before the stop, riding to Priors Marston. The return leg is 17 miles, via Canon’s Ashby and Bugbrooke.
We look forward to welcoming all riders, as always, and especially any new riders who may wish to join the ride. For any further questions, please feel free to contact Giles on 07540 887198
