Windy, warm(ish), dry. A strong southerly is due to blow on Saturday so not a day for the deep section rims!

All routes wind their way to Sherborne with the Blue and Pink routes going onto Yetminster and then taking different roads back to Kings Stag and eventually Fifehead Magdalene and Gillingham. The White route returns via Stourton Caundle and Stalbridge.

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!
