Dear All
I’ve had to change our cafe stop to the Forge in Culworth.
Unfortunately Canons Ashby are requiring people using the cafe to purchase garden passes.
Woodford Halse, which the original ride also passed, is not open on Sunday.
But the Forge is waiting for us !!
So, I’ve modified the route to keep the distance the same, meaning we don’t pass Woodford Halse anymore.  New route is linked below:


Dear All

Sunday’s ride is to Canon’s Ashby.

We will meet near the Library in East Hunsbury at the usual time of 9.30.

This will be the first weekend that we can have a proper cafe stop, with the COVID restrictions further relaxed. We are, of course, restricted to outdoors only, however Sunday looks to be dry, probably sunny and possibly up to 14 degs. Nearly summer.

The ride will take us to the West of Northampton, following familiar roads through Pattishall, Maidford, Woodford Halse and to our cafe stop at Canons Ashby.

As I’m sure we are all sick of hearing, we need to comply with the COVID requirements of distance etc. both before the ride and during the cafe stop. Remember to take masks.

This will be a steady ride, probably around 13mph, depending on the riders. If we have enough riders, as usual there is the possibility to have more than one leader, allowing faster or slower groups to suit the riders. So, can you confirm to me if you want to join so that we can ensure sufficient leaders.

Look forward to seeing you on Sunday

Cheers – Peter
