The New Year gathering and presentation of club trophies will be on Friday 10th January 2014 at the Kings Manor Hotel, Milton Road East, Edinburgh. Further details will follow later.

Suitable for all abilities and will probably include a cafe stop somewhere. Bring your mudguards please, drinks and a snack just in case. Nobody will be left behind and we will wait and assist with puncture repairs or other mechanicals. Just turn up and join in.
