Start time: 8.30am
Meeting point: Hunsbury Hill library, Overslade Close, East Hunsbury NN4 0RZ
Distance: 70 miles
Café stop: Café Royal, Royal Leamington Spa
Pace: Steady

To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, we have put together a royal ride to Royal Leamington Spa. The Café Royal in Royal Leamington Spa in fact. It’s a 70-mile ride of course which takes us on many familiar roads and some roads less travelled.

Pete and I have already ridden it although we didn’t manage to get into Café Royal as it was rather busy on that occasion. It’s at no 70 Warwick Street as it happens. I’m booking a table this time once I have the numbers, so please let me know as soon as possible if you are coming. 

Getting in and out of Leamington was easy enough so don’t worry too much about that.

There’s on street parking for cyclists right across from the café so please bring a lock with you if possible.

It’s a good idea to carry some spare energy with you for such a long ride as well. There might also be an opportunity for another stop on the way back if we keep our eyes peeled.

I’ll be carrying a good old fashioned paper map and have done the ride already. Hopefully some of you will have the GPS route and between us I’m sure we’ll get round the ride without any problems.

This is an 08:30 start from EH which means we should be in Leamington for elevenses or early lunch.
