Notes

Spring is finally here and hope everyone have a great spring day weekend of cycling. There’s more cyclists taking to the roads from September and a better option is to join our club rides than to ride by yourselves as most of our rides are planned away from certain hotspots but might change on the day due to the weather if you want to cycle at 25+km or 30+km I’m sure we would be able to accommodate you
