starting to feel like spring with the lighter nights and milder weather! With
the change of the clocks this weekend we can finally wave goodbye to the
repetitive winter routes and start to have a bit of variety. Below are the new
routes for the summer of 2019 please remove the 2018 routes from your device

confirm the route for the Tuesday and Thursday evening rides the day before.
If you do
have a device that allows for navigation then please download them where
possible, it makes it a lot easier when sorting groups at the start if more
people have the routes available. It is also better from a safety perspective
the more people in the group who have the route and are not relying on calls
from others within the group.
