Notes

Notes a big thanks to all our members who pop in to say hi at our gazebo at the Westcoast Express road race a great time was had by all despite the chilly 3 degrees early morning. A consensus amongst most of our members are that we need a faster group club ride to better prepare them for the upcoming races and to increase the distance to 100km. 29 September club rides will start 06h30.
