Routes Saturday 20th January
Meet 9 am main carpark area outside Ashbourne Leisure Centre. Please make sure you check through the routes beforehand.
Keep those mudguards on and always a good idea to wear bright clothing, lights on bikes 😉 Check the weather forecast and decide for yourself if you feel it is suitable for you to ride 🙂 A good tip to help encourage you out on these chilly mornings – check and prepare your bike and gear the evening before, clothing layers are a good way to go – click here for British Cycling’s tips on keeping your hands warm.
