Weekend Weather Update

Weather looking absolutely rubbish yet again. Stay tuned for updates. Current plan still to meet at 9am on Sun and call the route there and then. Likely will not head east.
Two current ideas: Rob has good idea to do the Giro D’Adlington which heads west and is not forecast to be as badly affected or Craig’s other option to ride relatively locally (boring yet quicker to get home if you’re really freezing). You can opt for which one you want on Sunday.
All the above changes if it is definitely snowing or icy on our route. In which case it will officially be cancelled, however you can go out and do as you please.

Revisiting one of Rob Symons’ routes from a couple of years ago which, Rob kindly reminds me, involved ice creams at the top of Blackstone Edge. Why the hell not? Read more


Safe to say that the ride this weekend is cancelled. There has been more snow today and there’s more snow forecast. Sub zero temperatures unlikely to abate for the timebeing and any snow that has fallen is likely to turn to ice.
Keep your eyes on the facebook group (ask to be added if not already on there) for rides been posted by folks who might go out Sunday or want to risk heading out but the club ride is OFF.
