Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 11th March 2020

Not many of these dark rides left now. Your favourite sloth could count them on the toes of one foot. I think we all know what this means? ……yes, that’s right! you’re running out of time to use those fancy lights your partner bought you for Christmas. So, make a big show of getting them on charge for this Wednesday - or risk socks and “grooming products” for Christmas 2020.

The forecast looks good, so see you outside of Priory School at 18:00 ( new members welcome ).

Sunday Club Ride: 23rd February 2020

With just a week to go before the end of the meteorological winter, opportunities to bag some “summer smile” giving “winter miles” are fast running out. If your winter mile count isn’t where you’d like it to be, take action now. Dig out your gloves and overboots, and join us for this Sundays ride out to Farrington Gurney. I can’t promise you a named storm – but we should be good for a bit of ordinary drizzle. See you outside Priory at 09:00.
