Due to the forecast of heavy rain tomorrow morning Sun 22-Sept, we have cancelled both the Grade 3 and Grade 2 rides, however, we have a solution to suit the pessimists and the optimists. Carl Preece will take a joint ride from Gowerton at 11.00 to Cross Hands via the Swiss valley and return via Llannon and Pontarddulais. We did consider postponing until Monday but apparently there is something on the TV Monday morning!
