Even though we are a racing club, sometimes just getting out on your bike with family and friends can make a nice change. For those of you not heading to the Omnium in Cardiff on Sunday 24 April, there is a charity bike ride happening in Sonning Common, Oxfordshire.

They have 6, 12 and 20 mile routes and all entry fees go to charity, which this year is Sue Ryder. PPV members, particularly younger ones, have taken part over the years, riding with their parents and showing them what they can do (i.e. dropping them on the climbs!).
