CCA TdF Super Summer Seventy Social - Friday 26th July

For the third year in a row, the mid summer ride / social is on once again on... this time to align with Stage 19 of Le Tour de France (Col De I'Iseran / Tignes mountain stage). A short, punchy mountain stage of just 80 miles which will, no doubt, be influential in deciding the overall standings of this years race.

The day starts with a classic club ride across the chiltern hills (including our own beasty climbs... Invinghoe Beacon and Bison Hill) to Tring where a welcome break is to be had at The Cog cafe link for coffee, bacon sarnies, cake etc etc.

It's then the run back under the Luton flight path to Letchworth and the Garden City Brewery link to watch Stage 19 of Le Tour, accompanied by beer, cheeseboards, scotch eggs and pork pies...

Everyone is welcome, either to ride, ride and drink, or just turn up to watch the racing and the craic.

Route will be the same as last year, Starting at 9am sharp from the Garden City Brewery, The Wynd, Letchworth, returning for approx 2pm.

  • Was it last year when on the return leg the road started to melt and our wheels were making that sticky tar noise..? This summer had better get its skates on!

    Looking forward to this ride. Thanks for arranging Matt.
