Boxing Day Cycle


This year, we’re organising a Boxing Day cycle. So if you fancy getting out on the bike and working off the Christmas turkey then check the details below.

Leave the boat club at 11:00. Will decide the routes on the day but aim to have options for varying levels of ability/enthusiasm. Aim for everyone’s return to the club by approximately 14:00.

Bar is open all day so plenty of time to leave the bikes home/get changed etc before heading to the boat club to a roaring fire, drinks and a hot bowl of something hot at approximately 16:00.

Please note the cycle is not being run by CSBC and you are therefore responsible for your own safety.

Everyone welcome, but please let me know if you are keen so I can plan for numbers.
