Calling Wokingham Riders

Postby flem51 » Thu Oct 04, 2012 13:18 pm

Is anyone interested in joining a regular peloton leaving from central wokingham every Sunday morning? Seems like there's nothing set up already?

I'd be interested in this, although I don't think I'll be in a position to get involved this side of Christmas. If you do sort something out, and find a way to coordinate the group (Facebook group?), update on here and I'll keep an eye on it :)

I'm a way off that at the moment - another reason to hold off until the new year. Need some serious turbo work in the mean time (and hopefully some real riding)...

I'm in Lower Earley - I'd be up for joining you guys for rides from Wokingham. I'm usually free on a Sunday, but can't make the 14th though.

Meeting 9am this Sunday (21st) at the double roundabout at the end of NIGHTINGALE CRESCENT, opposite Bracknell Sports Centre. Message if you need directions. Meeting up with another group so should be fun.
