Club Rides

Sunday saw two chilly club rides leave the Badger Box. Some of A Group headed out to Newark on a steady Sugar Beet ride with Scot at the helm. The rest of the club headed out on a steady ride to Crich Stand to watch the hill climb and take unfair advantage of the reduced price tea, coffee and caik!
