Ride Description

Ride Organizer

  We currently have vacancies for ride leaders however the Club’s preferred option is to have a ride leader prior to the ride rather than relying on the second-best option of ‘pick a leader on the day’. If you are able to lead a ride that has Volunteer listed in the calendar, please advise Nick by e-mail: natarnay@gmail.com and cc our Web Master John Hagan at haganjohn1947@gmail.com , who will add your name to the particular ride when it’s posted on the web.
