After a wet and windy week, Saturday looks to be dry with a light wind and the sun may even make an appearance! The Blue and Pink routes make their way to Yetminster via Stalbridge and Boys Hill, with the Pink route adding an extra loop to the Cokers before rejoining the Blue route at Bradford Abbas and then home by way of Cucklington.

The White route goes out to Boys Hill and turns north to Alweston and Charlton Hawthorne on the way back 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!
