Club activities – week commencing 20th February 2017

Please find below details for all this week’s club activities. Saturday rides are to Turweston.

In addition to the normal weekend social rides there is a 50/50 ride on Thursday evening, the non-stop/training rides on Saturday and Sunday and junior coaching on Saturday.

We currently need leaders for the all rides on Saturday and the C & D rides on Sunday so please leave a comment below, contact me via Facebook or email me at rides@bmcc2000.com if you can lead a ride.

Please also remember that if there are rides without leaders on Thursday evening they will be removed from the calendar (See the forum thread here: http://goo.gl/7mg9fY for more details).

NOTE: Mudguards are now mandatory on all club social rides (50/50 excluded obviously) until 1st March 2017. This is for the protection of other riders in the group. Please ensure that your mudguards are long enough (including mudguard flap) to prevent spray being thrown up behind you.

Make sure you are covered
