Saturday C Road Ride – 13th May

Justin Stanbrook, will be leading the C ride this week and rightly so after recent performances. The route will be the same route as the B ride, however the cafe stop will be on Torcross rather than Blackpool Sands Full details of route, see B ride. To ensure this runs smoothly, can we ensure the C ride departs before the B and the B before the A etc. Have a good ride all
