The post Xmas pick me up ride is now on 30th Dec to give more opportunities for people to come. The suggested attendance so far for Wednesday was quite low.
Due to the high risk presented by the heavy frost this morning, consistent reporting from several weather forecasting sources say -3 at the moment and not getting past 0° until midday; today’s ride is cancelled

The third installment of Mark Leigh’s Post Xmas Pick Me Up Ride.
This year we say “Hark! The Herald Anglezarke Ride!” as we head up towards Rivington and around the awesome roads around Anglezarke reservoir.
Should be a ‘cracker’ ;)
Usual tough ride with great company and I am sure some nice coffee and cakes along the way, as there will be a cafe stop somewhere around rivi probably. And, hell, maybe even a pint after, It is Christmas (sort of) after all. Mark to confirm on the day. Suggest big fella may twist his arm :)
