Mountain Bike Ride for Roadies (and yep even MTBers)😄 Thought time for another one, so meet as usual at Coypool for 09:00.  This ride will be aimed at those who are not necessarily regular MTBers but fancy a change.  So if you are one of those with an MTB in the garage gathering dust, get some air in your tyres and give it a go.  Route and pace will be such that anyone who turns up will enjoy.   We will agree in the morning but choice will be either Double Waters via the stunning Walkham Valley, or if it … Read more…
