Club activities – week commencing 3rd April 2017

Please find below details for all this week’s club activities. Saturday rides are to Turweston. Yes that’s right – with the cafe upgrade and the repairs to the access road (combined with the general feeling about Green Dragon) we’re going back to Turweston two times per month.

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

We currently need leaders for all rides on Saturday and the B, 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).
