MTB Fun/Social Ride – Saturday 17th March 2018

This 3rd Saturday ride we will meet at the usual place at 10am at Roborough Rock Carpark, then drive on to the start point nearby. (The big rock on the old airfield near Yelverton). It’s looking nippy, but their a gap in the weather, but will probably stay fairly low in the woods. Aim to be back at about 1330 to 1400hrs. Bring a change of clothes as we will go to the Pub for lunch/snack/drink afterwards. (Optional). Cheers John Allan
