Record Turnout of Tourers

Today’s touring rides to the Lavendar Line railway station at Isfield attracted 16 cyclists. Ten joined the ‘classic’ tourers ride led by Dave Sutton and me; six joined the Tourers ‘Plus’ ride led by Dave Tyler which goes slightly faster. This was a record turnout of members for the touring rides and is in-line with […]

It’s Spring and the Tourers are on a roll!

It’s the first day of Spring, meteorologically speaking, and the tourers are on a roll. We’ve already clocked up 660 miles with 22 rides over the past two months, our best ever start to a new year! Also, the number of members participating in our rides is steadily increasing with last Tuesday’s ride to the […]

A Record January for the Tourers

The tourers clocked up 300 miles with 10 rides in January this year even though there were several cancellations although, not as many as in previous Januarys. This is a record! The weather must be milder! Two years ago, in January 2017 we only managed about half that distance over 7 rides. Hopefully, the milder […]

Tourers get 2019 off to a Good Start

New Year’s Day was an excellent day for cycling: dry and sunny with virtually no wind. Eight of us cycled to Molly’s Café at Rottingdean for our first touring ride of 2019. It was a normal Tuesday ride for us although our average pace was slightly slower than our usual 12 mph due to the […]

Another Great Year for the Tourers!

For our final touring ride of 2018 we cycled to one of our favourite cafes: the Castle Cottage Tearoom at Pevensey Castle. It has a 1930/40s ambience with appropriate background music; Glen Millar can often be heard playing. Someone found that their Garmin cycle computer had lost GPS which was hardly surprising; there weren’t any […]

Another Super Tourers’ Christmas Meal

Thirty-two of us, a record number, were at the Cycle Seahaven ‘Tourers’ Christmas meal in the British Legion yesterday evening. It was our fourth year in succession at the Legion so it’s become something of a tradition. That’s hardly surprising as the meal is excellent value for money, the drink is competitively priced and it’s […]
