Hi All As the original route is a poor choice in wet weather, we will save that for a suny day and head to Lopwell Dam. I wasn’t expecting the weather gods to decide our Saturday was a good day to take a break from being sunny😄😄 or should that be 😩! So all meet at Coypool as usual please👍 I’ve not been around for a Saturday ride for a while so looking forward this and to seeing some new and regular riders on this my very fav’ 30 mile route.
