Blackpool - Sunday 18th July🎢☀️
We are looking to meet at the Arena at 07:30hrs. The weather is looking warm and sunny so plenty of suncream and liquid required. There will be plenty of opportunities to stop off when required to refuel.
Looking to ride at the usual group ride pace 👍
Once in Blackpool we are hoping for a sit-down lunch if we can find somewhere.
