Hopefully everyone had a good Christmas, the Christmas Eve social ride had a good turnout and nice to see some new people out. There were also a few people out on the Look Out ride on the 27th which unfortunately saw Zubhair have an off which resulted in a broken collar bone so I am sure everyone will join me in wishing him a speedy recovery.

Due to Xmas there is a lack of racing to report on but hopefully those that are looking at good results next year have got some miles in on their days off.

This weekend we have social rides planned for Friday and Saturday, Dave W is organising the ride on Friday and it is meeting at the Myrke Wooden Bridge nr Eton, at the start of the Jubilee River meeting at 10:15, Saturday the social ride is meeting at the Malt Shovel at 9.30. Sunday there is a road ride planned -this will be a training ride and be 3-4hours at a steady pace, one again this will be from the Malt Shovel.
