MTB Fun/Social Ride – Saturday 18th August 2018

It’s the 3rd Saturday of the month.  We will meet at 10am at Roborough Rock Carpark (large rock on the old airfield near to Yelverton).   Then drive on somewhere close by to start the ride.  I’m expecting to be back at the Burrator Inn for lunch/snack/drink at around 2pm. Bring a change of clothes for afterwards. Weather is getting a bit cooler than recently at 17 degrees, with light winds.  Rain is NOT forecast, but come prepared just in case. See you there  John 07824505817

TT event cancelled

Sadly this week’s TT has been cancelled. We just don’t have the numbers confirming their wish to participate and gaining volunteers during the Summer holidays is a nightmare. We will review at the end of August / beginning September. Watch out for the Post in August detailing the October Velodrome trip
