Weather looks good for Sunday, ideal for the first ride out since British Summer Time started.

This ride out is a bit different; we are trying a slightly different format:  There are no observers attending; before we start, in addition to a safety brief, we will have a good chat about Group Riding to make sure everybody is comfortable.  Then enjoy a great ride across Dorset and the Purbecks.  Not a long day out, with 2 stops, and a good mix of roads.

So, hope to see you there on Sunday.

Ride Out to:

Compton Abbas, then Studland for lunch


The ride out is open to all Members, Associates (providing they have been cleared by their Observer to attend ride outs) and Pillions.
