Reminder of Notice of Another Cycle Event, Saturday 27th October - Wiggle Hawker Hurricane Sportive. This is an amateur non-competitive cycling event. The three cycle routes all start and finish at Turweston aerodrome and to begin with will follow the Welsh Lane towards Stowe. All cyclists (estimated 1000) will eventually come through Biddlesden, on their way to the finish line back at Turweston Aerodrome. Riders will be started between 8 and 9.30am in small groups that will be spread out to avoid large bunches of riders on the road. The road will remain open to traffic, so please drive carefully.
