Connections in Ripley!

Phillip Gray, our Chair, noticed this in a recent edition of “Cycle Clips”:

“A CTC member welcomed Wiggins and other Team GB riders to Nest, his cafĂ© in Ripley, where the team plotted tactics…”

Several CTC Northampton riders met up in Surrey last year to try out the Olympic road race route (well, part of it, anyway…). We met outside a small cafe in Ripley. It turns out that not only do we share our good taste with certain other (more famous) cyclists, but that Ripley has a long association with cycling. Check out the links above!
