Those that came down to South Wales enjoyed a great weekend, riding the trails in all 3 trail centres which were in tip top condition with Cwm Carn as dry as you will ever find it, my own favourite was Brechfa’, The weather also did us proud for those that have never been to either Afan/Brechfa or Cwn Carm make sure you make the next trip.

On the racing front at the latest round of the Central cross league, Paul Carpenter was 24th in the vets whilst in the senior Neil came 10th with Jorge finishing 15th so well done to those that raced.

This week the usual Wednesday night MTB social ride is on, meeting at 7 p.m. at The Malt Shovel PH, then Friday it is the club AGM at the Specialized Concept Store in Ruislip, this will start at 7.30 and it would be good to see as many people from the club as possible. If you bring some cash I am sure Paul will be doing some good offers to tempt you to make a few purchases ! Saturday there will be a social MTB ride meeting at the Malt Shovel at 9.30 a.m. hopefully we will see some of our newer members out on this as well as some of our regulars that have been missing lately. Sunday the plan is a road ride leaving the same place at 9.30, pace and distance will be dependent on who turns up but depending on numbers may split into 2 groups. Any changes to the above will be posted up on the clubs facebook page.

This week the clubs special offer is CNP Chocolate and Orange , or Lemon Meringue or Chocolate Pro Flapjacks at 75p a bar or 10 for £7. Get in touch if you want any

Hopefully see everyone on a ride soon and don’t forget the AGM on Friday.
