Our Rides

  • Rides are generally held on the 3rd weekend of each month.  Generally on Sundays but occasionally Saturdays
  • More Rides may be scheduled, possibly on the 1st weekend of each month, or ad hoc (depending on the weather)
  • If you're thinking of coming on a Ride, it is important to 'phone the Leader to let them know. This saves waiting around at the Start and helps the Planning for food stops, etc.
