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

Saturday looks like it is going to be showery, cold and there will be a strong wind blowing in from the west. And it’s supposed to be Spring! All three routes initially make their way to Hunters Lodge with the Blue and White routes passing through Shepton Montague. The White route continues through Castle Cary then south to Corton Denham before heading back towards Gillingham.

The Blue and Pink routes make their separate ways to Sparkford, Sherborne and Stourton Caundle before returning to Gillingham.

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!
