Men's Tour of Britain Ride

We have a ride tomorrow (12th Sept) which will be heading down to Hemel Hempstead to watch the end of the Men's Tour of Britain. It's looking to be a spectacular day with some great weather and some awesome cycling and events down on the finish line.

For those of you interested in joining us for the ride, you can find the details below:

Start Location: Costello's Cafe
Start Time: 10:00am

The ride will include taking you there, enjoying the afternoon watching the final and then also regrouping for the ride home, this means that you don't have to worry about finding a route home on your own, unless you want to of course which is perfectly acceptable although please make Jim Brown (tomorrow's ride leader) aware.
