MTB Fun/Social Ride – Saturday 21st May 2016

MTB Fun/Social Ride – Saturday 21st May 2016 Now meeting at 10am Roborough Rock carpark, near Yelverton. This is the carpark just North of the big rock on the old airfield.  Travelling from Plymouth turn left about 0.5mile before Yelverton roundabout, then take the right around the other side of the large rock. Note : Neil kindly volunteered to step in to lead, but has now hurt himself riding on thursday night, so we need another volunteer to lead, and I thought it easier to meet here instead of Postbridge.
