Hi all I’ve provisionally booked our Annual trip to the Newport (Geraint Thomas) National Velodrome of Wales on Sunday 13th October 11am – 3pm Please confirm your interest to attend. Last years cost for the trip was £42 and which includes 4 hour Velodrome hire, an accredited coach to lead the session and individual bike hire. I’m hoping and dependant on numbers that this remains a similar cost for this year. Full details of the event/ agenda will be posted nearer to the time. Just names interested for now please
It’s the first Saturday of the month this Saturday so planning on leading the classic stepping stones route. Plenty of swimming spots and a pint on route if we wish🍻 Meet at Roborough rock at 10am, then drive on to start somewhere near the Whiteworks cottages👍 That is the large rock on the old airfield, just before Yelverton on the left (travelling from Plymouth) Bring a change of clothes for the Pub afterwards. On on Windy 07827353972
for those who don’t use facebook, here’s the message I have posted – This year there is no joint Christmas get together with the Yogi MTB’ers. So far we have an option to book the Nibana in Crownhill for around 40 people on the 15th November (Friday) Before we book I need to know potential numbers of people who would be interested in attending. If we have more than this we will try and find another venue, (possibly the Burrator Inn?). Price will be around £22 per person but will confirm once booked. Please can you message below if interested … Read more…
