Club activities – week commencing 2nd May 2016

Thanks to everybody who led rides this weekend – we only had a couple of rides dropped from the calendar eventually and I think everyone had a great few days riding.

We need a lot of leaders this weekend (only 4 of 8 rides currently have leaders) so please let me know if you can lead.

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).

    I see El Presidente fancies some free samples at the Brewery. Despite being currently full of cold, I am sure I will feel better for Sunday’s D-ride. Besides, how hard can it be to cycle to Brackley?

    • Dominic Allkins – BMCC

      I’m taking that as volunteering to lead the D on Sunday – thanks Mel 🙂
