The Freewheel event was held on Wednesday 12 July 2017. It started at Shillito Woods car park at 19:00 on a warm, wind free evening and 13 riders enjoyed the fun but not the gnats.  Carl won the event by travelling 2 metres further than the closest rival. The majority of riders then enjoyed a meal at The Royal Oak at Old Brampton.Thanks to Mick Hardwick and Peter Brown who organised the event.

There were quite a number of tours last year to and around places such Leomister, Milton Keynes,The National Forest stopping off at Meriden, Sherringham YHA and a week-end away at the Hartington YHA, to name a few.

The first tour this year (2017) was centred around Streatley on Thames Youth Hostel and ran from Sunday 28 May until Friday 2 June. The hostel was set in the delightful Berkshire countryside and offered super cycling and walking. The tour passed through beautiful villages and quiet lanes in a part of England that a cyclist might not consider visiting. The magestic city of Oxford was nearby as well as the magnificent Windsor Castle and park and also the White horse at Uffington.
