Nice easy one this week, and the good news is those fine chaps at the Met office have downgraded their earlier forecast of hail to 40% chance of light rain. So don’t be soft and get your lights on charge - it’ll be fun!
See you outside Priory School at 18:00

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.
Postponed from last week, here’s something for the time constrained. A 40
mile no café stop ride up the Gorge which should have you home for midday.
There’s the possibility of an add on ride afterwards if there’s enough interest
– we’ll decide on the day.
Rule of 6 applies – if we’ve more than that we’ll split into 2 groups
Thanks to Russell for putting this 2nd Wheelers awayday together, and it’s fair to say it is a bit special. The route starts in Builth Wells, crosses the Cambrian mountains via the notorious Devils Staircase, before returning through the Elan Valley.
There’s no denying there are some steep bits – but they’re really not
that long, walkable in fact. We’ll take it steady and all get around together.
If you like your scenery on the spectacular side, this one has it
in spades. Cancel any plans you may have and put this ride in your diary – you really
don’t want to miss out on this one.
( All counties for the drive to and ride are currently open – there
is a fallback awayday plan should further Welsh lockdowns scupper the plan )
See you at the Groe car park (£4 all day ) in Built Wells at 09:00
