Hi all, After last years lack of opportunity (some confusing comms you may recall), this year we have been given the heads up again to apply for team places so I have requested the usual 3 team places.

Now for the crux of it: if you want to be considered please let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org by 24th March stating whether … Read more…
Hi all, planning a get together on Saturday 21st March, meeting at the Marina bar at 7pm (Sutton Harbour) everyone welcome. We can decide where to go from there.
With Strong winds and Heavy rain predicted YET AGAIN!!! 😭 Unfortunately we have no choice but to cancel Official road rides tomorrow (29th Feb) with the safety of our members a priority. Those who do venture out do so at their own risk. Stay safe peeps
Hi All, It will be no surprise that we are cancelling all road rides for tomorrow (Saturday 15th Feb), the weather forecast is leaving no doubt that group riding on the road will be too risky. So putting the message out now so you can make other plans. Such as dusting off your MTB and go off roading, (away from trees naturally!).
