Sunday Club Ride : 11th August 2019

In our series of Wheelers Specials, this week we have our Coast to Coast ride.

The plan is to complete a route encompassing Weston seafront and down to Lyme Regis - and back.

Route courtesy of our illustrious Chairman, Wayne, who has incorporated a café stop halfway there and halfway back. With the prospect of fish and chips being consumed on the Lyme Regis beach.

The plan is to leave Priory School, at 7:30am, and follow the route to the seafront and on to Lyme Regis. It will be a long day and the expectation is that we should be back probably 7 - 8 pm. This assumes a 30 minute café stop on outbound and return legs and 60 minutes in Lyme Regis for lunch.

It may be as well to have some form of lights in case of any delay.

Note. There are a couple of small amendments to the original route, please use the updated version.

Saturday Club Ride : 10th August 2019.

At the moment, we are watching the forecast for Saturday.

Currently there is a 24 to 40 MPH wind forecast, coupled with the possibility of rain.

Given that this is a ride that is aimed at being on the easier end of the scale, this magnitude of wind is outside the acceptable weather parameters.

Check back later in the week for any updates...…….
