Gateway Cycling AGM 2021 – 8th October 7:30pm.

Five Reasons for going to the Gateway Cycling AGM on Friday 8th. October at 7.30pm. Because; There’s free pizza.  We need to be quorate (that means enough members turn up) otherwise there will have to be another one and so on until enough people do turn up. Turning up does not mean you’ll end up on the committee if you don’t want to. Terry. Honest. To be honest however, the club does need some members to step up to the pedal to take on some of the posts, most pressingly, Treasurer. There’s free tea, coffee and some cake (that I overbought last meeting and it will still be in date). If I can work out how to add a link to this you can see the accounts, agenda etc. online so you can fall asleep at the … Read entire article »

REGENTS CANAL RIDE SATURDAY 21 8 2021 – O8.40 GRAYS STATION

Dear All. I’m planning the above ride this Saturday 21st August 2021. Meet at Grays station 08.40, to catch the 09.00, platform 1, train to West Ham, arrive 09.28. (There’s a partial bus service this Saturday…) Briefly, off at West Ham, down Limehouse Cut to pick up the Regents Canal and on to Primrose Hill for coffee and snacks. On to Little Venice, Paddington, The Royal parks and the Embankment. From here a choice to ride homeward via either the north or south bank of the Thames. The canal path can get a little busy with walkers but we usually get through ok, it’s a slow pleasant ride then speed up later. Note. If you don’t live around Grays and you’re coming in on the Basildon line or elsewhere… we can wait for you at West Ham. Please Text, … Read entire article »

Carefully we picked our way through the wet terraced back roads to the ‘Boris Blue Route’ running beside the A13 leading to Beckton. Here with Dave’s expert guidance and safe easy riding, we rode through green parklands on to an early coffee stop … Read entire article »
