MTB Fun/Social Ride – Sat 19th Aug 2017

For this 3rd Saturday of the month MTB ride, we will meet at Roborough Rock (Large rock on old airfield by Yelverton) 10am. Then drive to the start point nearby. I’m expecting to be finished by around 2pm. As it is Trevor Hadfield​ ‘s BBQ at 5pm onwards, will probably skip the Pub on this occasion, so might be worth bringing a bit of lunch on the ride. See separate post for the BBQ on the “YOGi Cycling (MTB)” Facebook group for details of the BBQ. Cheers John Allan 07824 505 817
