Saturday 16-18 Road ride – 24th Feb

Mike smith returns this week, with Spring at mind; 0900 B&Q. Ride out to Bovey Tracey, climb Manaton heading to Warren Inn (I think). Hopefully blown to Foxtor for Coffee. Last part of ride is back to Plymouth at a higher tempo so people can gauge how it feels for 18 pace for the Spring.

***Time Trial Series 2018***

Hi all Following a successful Time Trial series (YOGi Members only) last year, I am planning to organise and run these again for 2018. I’m keen to determine the best day (evenings) of the week for everyone. Last year we completed these on a Wednesday and some of the feedback was that it co-incided with many wanting to ride traditional Wednesday club rides. So my thoughts were perhaps a Tuesday evening and which would create less competition for dates with Plymouth Tri Club and Alltrax. Please let me know your thoughts, i need to submit date requests by Monday latest.
