The smoke is starting to clear and although many of us are not out of the woods yet it is time to throw a leg back over the bike and get out for a ride.
So this weeks shop social ride is a bit of a mixed terrain ride. There will be some back roads, bitumen and dirt.
We will be starting and finishing at the Wynter Tavern so we can grab some food and a drink afterwards.
This ride will be suitable for anyone who a bit of fitness and a bike that can ride gravel roads.
