Yogi Fun Ride – Aerial footage

Last Saturday we had a great turnout of 14 riders and 1 dog in perfect weather.  We started from Cadover bridge, heading up onto the moor.  This video shot by Windy was just a small part at the start of the route but gives a bit of a feel for what our MTB rides are like.  Hopefully it will be the first of many.
