Our first major event of 2013 is only 2 months away now so please consider entering as soon as possible.
If you don't think that you can ride, please offer to help man one of our many checkpoints. All help is most appreciated and it will help to improve the experience of the hundreds of riders who will be riding out from Stevenage on April 7th. If you intend to ride, you can still help if you can get to Costello's earlier.
Over 500 people entered one of the three rides on offer in 2012 and we are sure to see similar numbers entering this year so please enter early to ensure you get a brevet card. Remember, you will not be able to ride if you do not have a brevet card!

We should be back out on the roads again tomorrow (Wednesday 30th) for our weekly Winter Wander with Jackie leading us on our way! Make sure you're at our Old Town meeting point for 7:15 PM tomorrow!

To All Riders
I am sorry but this evenings ride will NOT take place due to adverse weather conditions and taking into consideration of all riders. I as much as everyone, are keen to get back out on the bike, but having spoken to a few riders they say the conditions are dangerous.
Apologies and I hope we can all be riding again next Wednesday with me.
Best wishes Jackie Cooper xx
