Routes Saturday 23rd December – extra choices

Meet 9 am, main carpark Ashbourne Leisure Centre. Please familiarise  yourselves with your chosen route beforehand. Weather looking milder but mudguards and lights are still advisable. 

By request I have added an extra route to each of the A and B rides for those riders wanting a flatter route heading south.  However at the moment the weather forecast looks ok for hillier/north but take a look at both options, check the weather again later tonight, load both on to your devices and then you can decide amongst yourselves in the morning.

Have a good ride all – imagine all those extra mince pies you’ll be able to eat if you burn off a few calories on Saturday….. ?
