Club rides Saturday 30th November

Unfortunately with a sharp frost forecast for tonight and the potential for freezing fog as well, in the interests of safety it has been decided to cancel the club rides for tomorrow. I have ridden this afternoon and there are many places that are greesy, muddy and wet and with frost on top of this it could be quite dangerous riding tomorrow morning.

If you decide to ride tomorrow please take extra care out on the roads. Hopefully see everyone next week.
