Re: Sunday 20 Sep; 08:30 BH; A Run to 1232 Cafe, Albrighton (16-18 mph) (RIDE FULL)

In the excitement of wanting to take a ride to Spiders Web I neglected to check if the cafe was open.

It isn't so we're going to 1232 Cafe in Albrighton instead.

Revised route posted up.

If Mr Richards agrees you could take another group to Spiders Web & set off 15 mins later?

Hi Nick,

Are you still okay to lead the A run tomorrow? There's only three of us and I'm happy to jump onto one of the B runs if you'd prefer to change plans
Hi Pete,

Yes of course. I won't be offended if you'd prefer to jump across to another ride although I think the B Run is now full.
