Re: Club Runs - 16th December

This weeks A Run will be to Codsall & Wergs Garden centre cafe.

I took a ride here earlier in the year and the breakfasts are very good and reasonably priced for a Garden Centre.

Distance will be approx 100km BH to BH. Out via Kinver & Wombourne; Back via Seisdon & Kinver.

Re: Club runs - 12th August

Sunday’s weather is currently looking like we’ll be needing a rubber dingy instead of a bike.

But.....I’m daft enough to still ride anyway, so the plan is a non stop Beacon Burst 50-60 miles.

If the weather miraculously changes there will be a revised plan.
