Saturday Club Ride ?!


I've been paying attention to the weather forecast for this Saturday.


It has been getting steadily worse.


Currently it is forecast for 20+MPH winds gusting to close to 40MPH, and a coin-flip whether it will also be raining.


As I generally use 20MPH as a threshold, I'm not proposing to post a ride for this Saturday - given it's supposed to encourage newcomers to turn out and provide an easier ride for the less strong/fit members.


If anyone fancies leading a ride, please let me know by Friday afternoon , so I can post the route etc.

There is a possible road closure on Vole Rd, coming back from Mark, but I was able to ride through the road works a couple of days ago. There is an alternative we can take if necessary.
