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!

If you have previously booked tickets – You now need to update your ticket with your Menu choice   >> Menu and Instructions << Please see below the Christmas Party version3.0 plans with new date and venue. It has proven difficult to get a venue to match all of the requirements we originally had, and with the original date at this late stage (we booked the original venue(s) a year ago!!). Whilst rather different, I hope you agree this should make for a great evening of merriment with Live Music in the company of our YOGi Cycling friends. I am very confident … Read more…
