Bridgnorth Cycling Club. Club Road Rides. Sunday, 9th July 2017. Shropshire Thrills. Clee Cycles from 08.00 onwards. Shop Open.
The Bridgnorth CC are running a selection of special Sunday road rides this weekend based upon the 50, 70 & 100 mile routes traditionally part of the Shropshire Hills Sportive organized by Mamil Cycling, but not being run this year.
The event is open to all Bridgnorth CC club members, riders from other clubs, individuals and invited guests – everybody. There will be no entry fee, no dedicated feed stations, no signed routes but still some support on route and sunshine – probably.

100 mile hard riders. Registration/Sign In for a 09.00 departure.
50 and 70 mile rides Registration/Sign In for a 09.30 departure. Note. The 50 mile ride will probably have a Coffee/Cake stop of choice so carry some cash and a bike lock.

It is expected that all three rides will arrive back at Clee Cycles between 13.30 – 15.00 There will be a Gazebo and a simple BBQ in the car park of Clee Cycles – thank you Andy for your support, from 13.00 onwards. Partners, friends and family are welcome to the BBQ (very small charge to cover costs) or purchase drinks in ‘The George’. If anyone is available to volunteer to help out at the BBQ, can they let either Barry, Debbie, Paul, Andy or Bryan know please.
All welcome. Ensure you are carrying sufficient fluids and food or gels for the distance you intend riding.
