Re: Club Runs - 27th January

Beacon Z ride - Watophia Alan Weaver (L) To be eligible for club run points, you have to arrive at the cafe. Which virtual cafe stop did you use? If it was Croome Park, they do a line in virtual Bacon rolls. Croome park and bacon rolls IMPOSSIBLE never happen more chance of seeing one of these!!
