We're back!!

Hi everyone, Happy New Year.

Well the first ride of the year is looking like it's going to be a chilly one! We're at Chieveley this weekend which is just of the M4 at junction 13 near Newbury. The cold weather actually suits the Off road ride pretty well as it tends to freeze the mud solid and make the going fairly easy if a little bumpy!

At the moment we plan to go ahead with both rides, Saturday and Sunday. This is obviously subject to the weather and we will post on here if there is any change. The final post will be on Friday between 9 and 10pm for Saturday's ride and 5-6am on Sunday ( After I have pre-checked the route) I have decreased the Road distances and removed the "Fun" ride. This is because we are using less country lanes and are sticking to the wider, more used and therefore more likely to be gritted roads. Distances are approx. Short - 27miles, Medium - 41miles and the Long at 57 miles, which is probably enough in the cold.

The night ride is still going ahead for the hardy few :-)

The Competition to win a USE Exposure light will close this weekend, so if you haven't already, click on the tab on the top right and answer a few, easy questions to enter the draw. (There's about 100 entrants so far, so that's not bad odds)

Demo Bikes
Jon(Boy)'s back with a new fleet of bikes so if you fancy a ride on a new machine, drop him a line via the demo fleet page of the website.

Gore Clothing
Jon (Fat) will also be in attendance with Free Gore clothing for you to try out, along with some leg and arm warmers for sale at 20% off.

Look forward to seeing you all there this weekend, I'll be the one wearing shorts and a T-shirt.
