The Summer Solstice Metric Century Ride


When: Tuesday 19th June 2012 – Finishing in the White Hart at 10!

Where: Shifnal

Why: Why Not?

To mark the longest day of the year the society has decided to combine our two favourite pastimes, cycling and drinking beer.

For a variety of reasons we can’t actually do it on the 21st, so we’ve reverted to the usual Tuesday night slot instead.

Most rides work off a start time, but the need for malted recovery beverage consumption changes things slightly. Instead the aim is to be at the White Hart in Shifnal for 10pm. A group will be rolling away from HQ at 180V sharp, but you’re free to leave earlier or later if you think you’ll need more or less time to cover the course and still make it to the pub for 10.

I’m finalising the route at the moment, but a loose plan is to head east into Staffordshire and cross the Chase before turning back towards home through Rugeley. The return leg will take us across to Newport before finishing up at the pub.

What better way to enjoy a summer’s evening?
