The All Inclusive Social Rides at Tortoise Pace ( coz i cant go any faster ) have proved quite popular this year and it has been suggested that we think on reviving the Mercury Social Picnic Ride on August 13 . The venue could be Tara Centre at Etwall as this allows a number of routes to cater for various peletons. The young with their social Mums could travel down the cycle track from Mickleover, the lazy and me could do, say, a 40k loop to Tara whilst the superfit could reach Tara via Ashbourne and Uttoxeter. Aiming to reach Tara 11-00 to 11-30. There are plenty of grounds to sit, eat and relax whilst the place itself can offer icecream, cakes, drinks and light lunches for those who dont want to take their own food.
I suggest that we need about a dozen takers to make it worthwhile and I have lost 4 of my Sociable Peleton to Scotland as Sarah Gell and her brood have departed to Scotland.

4 weeks 1 hour ago #41960
I have now added some routes to this and put an Option Choice on the FB page
AUGUST 13..forecast to be a warm sunny day
And also the date of the next All Inclusive Social Ride..but with a difference..a PICNIC !
In order to entice as many as possible to join us there will be 3 route options to Tara World Peace Cafe at Etwall...all leaving from Broadway at 09-00
There are some wonderful grounds and a cafe serving cakes and light lunches for those not wanting to take their own food. There is also a car park for those too young to even ride a bike and might need a chauffeur
