Letter from the editor

This week’s magazine features our last Ride With article, in which we head down to Kent to go out with the Rye and District Wheelers. Ride With has been running since early February 2015 — that’s four years of getting out and riding with you.

Almost 200 clubs have welcomed us on their weekly club runs and we’ve had a great time exploring new routes across the country. Even those cold, wet days in the depth of winter when we probably would have otherwise stayed in bed were worth it.

Our writers have been out with clubs from Devon to Orkney, from the furthest corner of Kent to Northern Ireland. We’ve been taken on many beautiful routes and enjoyed tea and cake at some of the country’s best cafes.

One of the joys of reading the feature each week is seeing what rude health the British club scene is in, and learning how clubs make such a difference to the lives of their members and the communities they’re in.

I’ve said it before, but international success comes and goes; what will always remain is the cycling club and its members — you are the heart and soul of this sport. Thanks for having us and keep up the great work. We’ll see you out on the road again very soon.
