Annual Navy Cycling Festival 2012 – Ilton Somerset Sunday 14th April

We have been asked to advertise this event, which of course we are delighted to do, especially as it is also aimed at family participation.

It would be good to see YOGi Cycling represented and a two up time trial perhaps a good way for a first attempt at any competitive cycling, there’s nothing more rewarding than being physically sick in tandem!!!  Well apart from watching others doing it that is!

So if you are interested and have a chosen partner enter directly via the link, or if you want to find a partner post below and then jointly register. Link is at the bottom of the article. Read more…
