Weekend Rides 9/10 Dec

UPDATE SATURDAY 15:52 The forecast for Sunday is for heavy snow so the 0900 and 1000 rides are now cancelled.

UPDATE FRIDAY 22:53. We’ve taken the decision to postpone both Saturday rides because of the risk of ice on untreated roads and also the low wind chill factor. A decision about Sunday’s rides will be made on Saturday evening.

The cold weather is upon us! At the moment all weekend rides are planning to go ahead. However, there is a risk of cancellation due to the weather that is forecast especially for Sunday. Any announcement of ride cancellation will be posted in the Facebook Group and on the website about an hour before the scheduled start time.
