A reminder that we are now back to a 9.00 am meet up!

As ever the forecast keeps changing but at the time of writing the morning may be dry! Three routes all head south to Blandford with the White Route turning left at Keyneston Mill and from there it heads to Witchampton (I believe Tarrant Gunville / Stubhampton may still be underwater) and Gussage St Michael. The return is via Ashmore, Zig Zag and Shaftesbury.

The Blue and Pink routes continue to Wimborne and Horton, with the Pink route going onto Cranborne and 6d Handley whilst the Blue route passes through Horton.

The rides all end at the Old Brewery Cafe and Kitchen for coffee, cake, or brunch.

Meet at 9.00 am at the Wheels car park, Station Road, Gillingham. Please ensure you download your chosen route to your GPS device, and remember to bring your ride essentials, particularly sufficient liquid refreshement.

There is nothing to stop a group splitting into a ‘light’ and a ‘dark’ group, and a slower group can take on a longer route or a faster group ride a shorter route. All rides are no drop rides but please select a group suited to your ability!

Also, a reminder that if you haven’t paid your membership fees they are due now!
