As the weather seems set fair(wish), most of the ride leaders have taken advantage of this and have some great looking routes for this Sunday. Most are heading out East to avoid the Dragon Ride and are slightly longer than of late. As usual all rides are subject to weather conditions and numbers.
Alex Tuck was due to lead the fast group, however due to his unfortunate spill this will not be possible. I`m sure we all wish him a speedy recovery.
We have 5 designated groups this week. I would ask that if possible could everyone be at Maindy for 9.20am so I can make a start on organising the groups. Last week Liz`s group didn`t get away until 9.50am.
