Routes Saturday 17th February

Meet 9 am main carpark outside Ashbourne Leisure Centre. Please ensure you take a good look at the routes beforehand and either download them on your chosen device or bring a map  😉    Mudguards, bright clothing & lights always a good idea.

 Please do make use of the Club WhatsApp Group to message if you are intending to be out  – during this period of unsettled wintry weather it’s useful for others to know if there’ll be any others meeting up on either the Road or MTB routes  – people are often more encouraged if they know they won’t be braving the elements on their own 😉  However do use your own judgement accordingly and only ride if you feel the conditions are suitable for you – always better to err on the side of caution if in doubt…

(The A, B & MTB routes are a repeat of last week’s as very few people out then so will give another chance to do them).
