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

The latest forecast is suggesting a dry Saturday after some rain overnight, though there will be an easterly wind. All three routes make their separate ways to Hindon and Chilmark from where the White route heads to Tisbury and the Donheads before looping around to the south of Shaftesbury before returning to Gillingham. The Pink and Blue routes continue to Dinton and back to Fovant and Tisbury before also making a loop around to the south of Shaftebury.

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!
