Ride leader: David Haywood with TEC to be advised.
As I write this on Friday evening, the weather forecast looks good for the time of year with some sunshine and little chance of rain; cold but temperatures well above freezing.
In keeping with Wednesday ride out tradition expect your pride and joy to be absolutely filthy by the time you arrive home!
Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday.
