We have now uploaded our posters for our Saturday Starters and Easy Evening rides for April and May that can be downloaded from the pages on our website or from this article.
If you could print a few copies out and ask local shop owners to put them up in their windows that would be great for advertisement or if you work at a company ask to put up the poster on a noticeboard to encourage more people to join us for our rides.
