TT event cancelled

Sadly this week’s TT has been cancelled. We just don’t have the numbers confirming their wish to participate and gaining volunteers during the Summer holidays is a nightmare. We will review at the end of August / beginning September. Watch out for the Post in August detailing the October Velodrome trip
