2020 Cycling

Julyclick for this month's league table

COVID-19, Week 16

North Group headed west through Rothley, Cropston through Bradgate to Beacon Hill, Quorn, Barrow on Soar to Sileby for coffee and cake at Richard Clark's house. Only got a little wet in the 26 miles.

South Group had an excellent 45 mile trip. Well organised by Richard Sleath including a quiz! Sunshine and showers but happy faces all the way.

Bob and Ben saved their riding until the last minute to take advantage of the sunshine on Sunday. Ben kept within the Red Area and went for a spin round Watermead Park, trying to keep up with Derek Foster.

First week of July with many Embers cycling miles.
