A clas­sique way to spend a rainy bank hol­i­day Mon­day

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

HERO: Artist Paul Wil­liams with a pen and ink of the leg­endary Bel­gian cy­clist Ed­die Mercx DE­SPITE dis­mal weather con­di­tions, a cy­cling fes­ti­val was well sup­ported.

The Che­nies Velo Clas­sique was held on Mon­day, Au­gust 31 with three dif­fer­ent cy­cling dis­tances and dif­fer­ent events and stalls for fam­i­lies to en­joy. Around 450 peo­ple took part in the event, which was held in Che­nies Manor.

Or­gan­iser, Nick O’Brien, said: “It was a very wet day so the num­bers were down, but the lo­ca­tion was bril­liant and ev­ery­one was very com­pli­men­tary. The stalls still man­aged to do a great trade, I think con­sid­er­ing the weather we punched above our weight. Ev­ery­body is very keen for next year, we just hope for bet­ter weather.”
