Official Club road rides will be cancelled this weekend, as we cannot guarantee the absolute safety of our Members. Although thawed in areas, we cannot guarantee that all roads surfaces are safe to ride. As an example Ivybridge is still snowed under and only stopped a hour or so ago after starting again. We welcome any unofficial rides to be organised through the YOGi Fb page and encourage you to ride safely if you do venture out. I hope you can understand and look forward yo seeing you next week
