On a recent Wednesday night ride our route took us through the back door of Green Park to Kirtons Farm Road. We were heading south but should we have wanted to head west then we faced a dead end.
Some closed roads are passable by pedestrians and so bikes too. But in this case the bridge over the railway is being raised to make room for the electrification of the line, until June this year.
You can find out details of closed roads and other fascinating road related data from http://roadworks.org/ which publishes data from local authorities.
Tomorrow the weather is forecast to be unpleasant with some rain and increasingly strong westerly winds which, with an eastern destination, will make our return hard. I shall, of course, turn up at the start but will be prepared to modify or shorten the ride in the light of conditions.
The runs list for March – May is has been published
It is also available as a file for Google calendar
In April at the Birthday rides there’ll be awards to present to worthy individuals who’ve excelled over the last year.
The awards shouldn’t sit in a dark cupboard but should be proudly displayed on a mantlepiece or similar. So please give it some thought and send your nominations for the following awards to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Services to the club
- Ride leader of the year award
- Morris Shield for most mileage
Your nominations and claims will be ruminated over by the committee and are open to all. It goes without saying that the more we have the easier the job gets.
