Sunday Club Ride : 16th January 2022

I thought we might venture more north than we usually do. Not that far north, just to Portishead.

Sunday Club Ride : 2nd January 2022

Here is the proposed route for this Sunday. I may amend the route on Saturday. There is a stretch of road that may be a bit muddy on the way back. I will try to come up with an alternative to try to avoid excessive muddiness - as much as possible.

There may be an opportunity for a café stop at Farrington Gurney, although I'd need to check if it's open.

(Please note, the Secretary may be absent from this ride)

Meet up at 9am. outside Priory School.

Here is an alternative, possibly less muddy route, but anywhere can be muddy at this time of year.

Sunday Club Ride : 26th December 2021

Just an opportunity to get a bit of fresh air after Christmas. No cafe stop, as I doubt any will be open. There is the potential for dampness over the next few days, so the route should miss the worst of any muddy stretches.

Meet up at 9am, outside Priory School.

Club rides over the Christmas period

It may not surprise anyone that there will not be the usual Saturday morning club ride this week; with all the present opening and drinking possibly going on. Additionally, the weather for Saturday is currently looking pretty dire.

There is, however, an intention to have a club ride on the Sunday, 26th of December.

The ride will probably be a shorter route, as a café stop is probably out of the question.
