MTB Fun/Social Ride – Sat 27th October 2018

It’s not a formal ride this weekend, but it’s been dry all week, and looking fine for the weekend, so we have an Ad Hoc ride this saturday.   Meet the usual place – 10am at Roborough Rock Carpark (Large rock on the old airfield, near just before Yelverton, when travelling from Plymouth)   Bring a change of clothes, as we will likely end up at the Burrator Inn for Lunch/Snack/Drink.   Not sure who’s leading yet, but I expect we will be back at the Burrator Inn by 2pm ish!
