On the weekend of 5th/6th/7th April 2019 Chippenham Wheelers are hosting the White Horse Weekend, a relaxed gathering of cyclists from across the UK, featuring leisurely rides, social get-togethers, and plenty of tea and cake.
This tri-annual event started way back in the 1970s but – just like so many things in life – gets better with age, and we hope to carry on that tradition for this year’s event.
We circulate the WHW information to cycling clubs locally and nationally and get plenty of visitors from many parts of the country joining us. We have set up an online booking site to make this process easier and less time consuming.
Many people arrive on Friday evening at the HQ for the weekend – Chippenham Sports and Social Club, and we open for registration from 6pm. There will be tea and cake on offer.
On the Saturday, rides start at the event HQ in before setting off for jaunts of varying distance. Fuelled up by bacon rolls, tea and cake, riders can follow a choice of 3 routes in the local lanes in a roughly westerly direction, for a lunch stop in Old Sodbury.
Tea and cake will be available at the Event HQ on return from the ride.
Saturday evening’s entertainment include a pasta supper and a quiz.
Sunday’s rides set of from all aiming north and converging at Charlton Village Hall for – you guessed it – tea and cake, before returning to the HQ for late lunch.
As you can see there are a few tasks that need covering!
It would be great to have some volunteers from the club membership to help. We don’t expect you to give up the entire weekend but offer maybe some catering help on one of the days, cake making, ride leading, help clearing up at the end on Sunday.
Below are the tasks that need covering:
- Friday evening hall set up/registration desk – 5.30 – 8pm.
- Friday evening – tea/coffee
- Saturday morning – Chippenham Sports Club (CSC)- tea/coffee making, bacon butties pre ride.
- Saturday lunch – Old Sodbury – help with catering – ploughmans lunch, tea & coffee
- Saturday tea – CSC – tea/coffee/cake
- Saturday supper – CSC – help with catering
- Sunday morning – CSC – tea/coffee pre ride
- Sunday morning – Charlton VH – tea/coffee/cake
- Sunday late lunch – CSC – help with catering – lunch, tea/coffee.
- Sunday afternoon – CSC – clear hall & tidy away
If you’ve never done anything like this before don’t worry we will put you with an experienced helper so you won’t be expected to do it all on your own.
All volunteers who offer to help with the catering and registration will be fed and watered accordingly.
I look forward to hearing from you with offers of help – the more the merrier!
