Sunday Club Ride : 3rd November 2019.

The weather forecast for Sunday has improved significantly over the last 24 hours, so it is now possible the weather won't be the armageddon forecast earlier.

The wind is predicted to be from the West, so a North/South has been chosen to avoid, as much as possible, a strong headwind.

At the moment, a moderate breeze is expected and a lowish chance of rain for the bulk of the ride.

Meet up at 9am, outside Priory School.

Saturday Club Ride : 2nd November 2019 cancelled

Although a ride hasn't been posted, it is unfortunately necessary to cancel any club ride for this Saturday.

With winds of over 30MPH forecast, along with potentially heavy rain. The weather are unsuitable for the intended participants - and indeed anyone else.

So, there is no intention of posting a club ride for this Saturday. There may be a small possibility that the weather forecast could improve, but the notification would be given only short notice.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride : 30th Oct 2019

Although the weather forecast currently isn't fantastic. Why not dig out those lights and treat yourself to a mid-week ride with Luke?  

A steady climb up over the Mendips via Shipham and Longbottom, followed by a drop down to Blagdon Lake via Two Trees.

Meet up outside Priory School at 18:00.
