Petite Etape de Northants ride – Saturday 20th July

We start at the Brampton Valley Way – BVW or National Cycle Route 6  (Welford Road Crossing, near The Windhover) at 9.30 a.m.  Distance = 36 miles.  Pace = brisk (say, 14 m.p.h average).  Finish at The J Gallery Café, Moulton.  Alex will be leading and he has worked out a route with 2,536 ft of ascent!  His contact number is 07710 911158.  He looks forward to seeing you.

Alex notes that at the moment the BVW is signposted “closed” for 12 weeks between Mill Lane and the Welford Road Crossing but he has been using it OK from the “horse field” at Kingsthorpe.

After the ride, you could pedal on to Karen’s Coffee Day at 33 Grange Road, Stanwick, NN9 6PZ.  CTC member Karen rode from London to Paris in aid of “Against Breast Cancer” in June this year; in June next year she’s tackling the Three Cities Ride (London to Brussels to Amsterdam).  On Saturday she’s holding a Coffee Day (10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. – not just a Coffee Morning!) as part of her fund-raising for “Prostate Cancer UK”.  There’ll be cakes and other refreshments – and a tom bola / raffle.  Karen would love it if you could call in and support her!
