We’ve posted up the ride details but obviously, given the weather, it’s looking unlikely we will get out. Saturday remains the plan but it’s very low chance we’ll be out Saturday morning. We will confirm on Thursday night. Alternative may be an adhoc spin on Sunday.

Let’s talk about weather. It’s obviously rubbish (in cycling terms) and dead cold again.
I think it’s fairly obvious given the forecast that Saturday morning isn’t going to be a goer and as a club, safety is paramount concern.
With snow forecast again today (Wednesday), the temperatures aren’t scheduled to return to anywhere above 0 until late Friday before dipping down again. I think that leaves far too much scope for ice, especially where our routes go.
Depending how it all pans out, Sunday looks a LITTLE better. Propose that if all is well we could do a adhoc small ride on the Sunday, maybe even a little coffee run somewhere. Couple of hours. Saturday is highly, highly unlikely but we will confirm for sure on Thursday evening.
