We’ve moved! With club rides restarting following the gradual easing of COVID-19 restrictions, we decided to move to a great new ‘home’ (OK, meeting point) at KT13 9EL.
A Safer Place to Meet.
Having been ‘evicted’ from our original meeting point, with the G3G office gradually morphing into retirement homes and the corner of High Pine Close proving to be a local traffic hot spot, we decided to relocate to a quieter and potentially safer spot.
Various suggestions were made and vigorously debated, before we settled on the York Road Car Park, just off Queens Road. All regular Club Rides will now depart and end from this location.
The decision was primarily motivated by safety, as we can exit or turn into York Road without crossing the traffic, but the proximity to BoHo may also have been a factor!
A number of Wednesday and Saturday rides have since used this meeting point and so far it’s proven to be successful, if a little busier than originally expected. As usual, we’ll aim not to disrupt the local neighbours or anyone using the facilities, and I’m sure that we’ll prove too fast for the Traffic Wardens.
So if you find yourself alone, outside Prestige Pawnbrokers and wondering if they have bikes for sale – currently they don’t (but are selling a suit of armour for over £7K) – it could be that you’re in the wrong place?
