Wheelers embark on the randonee

Retford Wheelers will integrate their club run with the Amstel Standing Randonee, organised by Bridgegate Cycles, on Sunday.

A randonnee is French for excursion, and this ride is held on the same day as Dutch classic Amstel Gold Road Race.

The Amstel Standing ride is 100km over a designated course, with five check in points, to be ridden at riders’ own pace.

Wheelers meet for their Sunday rides at 9am at Retford Market Square.

For further details contact Bridgegate Cycles or the BroomWagon Vélo Café in Retford.

The Wheelers run on 27th April will be to Southwell, leaving town at 9am.

Up to 22 riders have been turning out for the early season club runs, to villages in Notts, South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire.
