UPDATE: 09:15 10/12/17:
It is with great regret, and for the first time in over 30yrs, we have to cancel the Christmas ride and lunch. The local roads are just too bad to even drive and this would definitely be a problem due to the location of the pub.
Watch this space for any further update on the meal.

Peak District Ride Weekend.......

  May 27-29 2017 Anniversary Weekend Ride   

          Are you going on this ride through the Peak District?
            Some information from the accomodation centre we are staying at.

Location/map details can be found here.  The building is right next door to the Bull's Head Hotel where we have booked for the Saturday evening meal.

Re carparking:
The guide says “There is just one parking space at the front of the hostel for guest use. A car park is available at the west end of the village next to the allotments, a 5 minute walk from the hostel.” I had a look on google and the car park at the west end of the village takes about 20 cars so should be OK, here is the link to location

We could also potentially use the Bulls Head Saturday night if need be, on top of a bit of on street parking if pushed".


45rc club TT events.....


Remember the 45RC club holds "open" club TT events every Tuesday evening, see the club calendar for details of each event for 2017.........signing on generally opens 45mins to 1hr prior to start as listed in the calendar and closes 15mins before start. Remember working rear red tail light and your helmet!
