Event Description

With the Mary Townley coming up at the weekend I thought it might be a good idea to have a warm up MTB ride before.  If nothing else it will make sure everyone's bikes up to scratch.

We are leaving mine at 6.30 prompt and riding up to Old betts and up to the wind farm and back.  Ride is about 14 miles and should take a couple of hours with a pint at the end.  Even if your not on the weekend your more than welcome to join us.

It is 36C here and some of that cooling rain you ate having would be nice. Enjoy!

The following day we rose at…
