Weekend rides – 30th April to 2nd May 2016

Thanks to everybody who led rides this weekend and kudos to those who completed the Endurance ride yesterday – great stuff.

It’s a Bank Holiday so that means three days of riding – although it would be nice to do some riding in Spring conditions before we hit summer.

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).
