16th March 2014 Myton Hospice Maul 21

Doing a ride for charity today, well half of it. Set up annually by Mike Vaughan's Bikes of Kenilworth, the event is aimed at raising much needed funds for Myton Hospice, a local charity that was set up in 1979 to provide special care for patients, especially terminally ill patients. I think this is the fourth time the event has been held, the first year,  2011, 125 riders took part raising £770. Last year £1600 was raised.


The event started from the Warwickshire Golf Club (400 yards from my house) and there were two routes, long and short.  The long route went around the south of Warwickshire to Shipston on Stour and back. Our preferred choice was the shorter, 38 mile circuit going out to Southam and back.
The ESCC and Warwickshire Police Cycling Club combined to enjoy the day. Pictured are from l to r
Diane, Mark, my bike, Janet, Pat and his wife Val. We set off to the north west and I explained that I would be leaving the group at Barford.

M40 footbridge

Left them all at Barford and went home via Warwick. On the way back took this photo of the bridge path leading over the M40. Another one for the series 'Four Seasons'. Nice blue sky notice. It was a cracking day for a ride.


Another annual shot taken on the Woodloes. This is opposite the Volvo building on Primrose Hill. (Should that be renamed do you think). A certain sign that Spring has nearly arrived. Only 5 days to go now.

A good ride out in the warm sun. A fraction under 21 miles which means a 100 for the week. Result.
