It’s 1st Saturday of the month, so the ride is on. Meeting at the usual place at 10am, which is Roborough Rock carpark (large rock on the old airfield about 0.5m before Yelverton on the left, heading out from Plymouth), then driving on To somewhere nearby to start the ride.

As a club it’s great to be able to reflect that we have been part of a period when cycling went from being a minority sport to very much main stream.

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
