Steve Dewey's G5 group numbering (don't tell AW) a baker's dozen (which did split on the busy roads) set off with the unusual addition of Martin B who promised to accompany us for the whole ride. Thank you Martin it was a pleasure to have you on board and a great addition you were too. Steve had promised a flattish route out to the Milk Churn (Rudgwick for those who still might not have visited this gem) taking the long way there - some 40 miles or so with 25 on the way home.
Hi All I have been forwarded this from a member. I know a few of you tried out an MTBO last year and thoroughly enjoyed it so this might be worth a go
If you haven't tried one before it really is great fun. Great for adults or accompined children.
