Hi all,

I've just taken on the role of Regional Organiser for the Notts region. Over the holiday period, I will contact all members with a view of gauging interest for runs out and social gatherings.

Looking forward to meeting members, and meanwhile, watch this space for news on group rides/meetings.

Good morning all, It was really great to meet everyone on the call Zoom yesterday evening, thank you for attending and all the input everyone gave. We hope the group will go on to flourish, and we can all be part of a friendly, social and active group. Just a few notes to share with the group from our meeting. Attendee's location Kevin & Tracey Smith- Sherwood. Colin & Rosy Gray- West Bridgford. Andrew & Sally Wheeler- Grantham. Steve & Irene Dickman- Fiskerton. Simon & Jill Cocker- Grantham. After introductions, we discussed possible dates for our first tandem outing as a group, taking into account the governments planned easing of restrictions. 1st ride Sunday 13th June 2021 Meet at Trent Bridge- Bridge Café/sandwich bar. No toilets here, only a small venue. Around 40 miles with stop midway through the ride for refreshments – Through The Gate. An interesting Buffalow farm, c/w derivative food products! Group aiming at staying together/regroup as required – its not a race! Ride to be added to Tandem club website (whats on section) and emailed out to all on Nottinghamshire regional group email- with meeting point, GPX route. We would look at alternating start locations for future rides. Dates for monthly rides TBC, but initially second Sunday of month? Although not mentioned during the Zoom meeting, if you have any ride suggestions or are happy to lead a ride, please speak up. Hoping to see you all soon Kevin & Tracey

  • Our first group ride post lock down, subject to ongoing guidelines. 13th June 2021, depart from Bridge Cafe (NG2 2JY,no toilets), Trent Embankment 09.30am.
  • For a 40 mile loop back to start, with a cafe stop mid point (Through The Gate, Buffalo Farm). Pace to suit group. While not a hilly route by any means, in does undulate in general and climbs steadily to about 100m after the cafe.
  • Leaving Notts. on the new cycleway along side the Tram line, does make for a good traffic free way out of the city, but there are some chicanes that may require a slow approach or dismount, we shall also return via the same cycleway to the start. 
  • Plenty of free parking is available adjacent to the cafe.
