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.

The Letchworth Greenway is a popular route that makes up part of some of our rides.
Recently, a major update has been made to the website for the Greenway to allow live updates on the state of the route to be made. This can be found at http://www.greenway.org.uk/about-greenway/status-updates
. There is a link on this page that takes you to a map which allows you to match up the location numbers against the actual points on the Greenway.
If you are going to be going anywhere near the Greenway on your bike or on foot, we suggest visiting the Greenway and also, take a look at the live updates page to see if there are any problems near that area!
