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…
