Club Rides Relaunch

This weekend, 22nd/23rd July, the club rides are undergoing something of a relaunch. 

Over recent weeks 30 club members, who are amongst our most experienced club riders and who have volunteered to be ride leaders, have met and discussed how our club rides are run. We've put together all of the feedback we've been given from across the whole range of our club rides and hope this will make the club rides even more enjoyable and successful than they are now.
