Wednesday Club Ride: 18th September 2019

We’re well into September now, and traditionally for cycle clubs that means hill climbs. So, as a nod to that tradition lets climb one – and if we are going to climb one, lets make it a good’n’.............Draycot!!

Alternatively - If you really don’t fancy Draycot, why not climb the Gorge and we'll regroup at the Plummers Lane/Priddy Hill junction
