Update: Ride Cancelled - Saturday 23rd March

Due to the high risk of ice today's ride to Vanstone's Garden Centre has been cancelled.

The temperature is not forecast to get above freezing today so any snow that has melted due to traffic, will likely refreeze causing ice/black ice to form.

I cannot be 100% sure that it is safe to ride today, so based on what I can see and what is forecast, I am forced to cancel today's ride.

Tandem Captain Wanted

We have had a request for help:

"I would really appreciate any help you might be able to give in finding a volunteer Captain. I am blind with no useful vision - but I am very capable and my balance has been described as exceptional - i.e. I wonít and donít wobble about on the back 😊"

He has a tandem and is raring to go - is there anyone out there who would like to give it a try?
