This Saturday as it is the first of the month will see us run a green ride for those riders who are new to group riding. Unfortunately, as the Autumn is now arriving this will be the last Green ride until April next year when the weather hopefully turns warm and dry again.
Saturday 24th is our Club Hill Climb and Half Wheel Competition!
This years events will be held at Watsons Hill and Semer Hill in Semer.
The Saturday club ride will be heading there from Northgate at 9am and then looping back to the Cult Cafe for refreshments and cake.
With the Sudbury Open Hill climb just a few weeks later its a good chance to see where your legs are at and of course be in with a chance to be crowned our club champions.
Due to low ticket sales with a week to go, the committee has sadly decided to cancel this year’s event.
Matt will be in touch directly with those that paid to get their refunds.
