It is not a good idea to ride as a group if the temperature drops below 2 centigrade. I realise that some cyclists have to cycle or like to ride in icy conditions but do take care especially if you are getting older like myself. I ride with a Cycle Tourist Club, known as Redditch & Bromsgrove part of Heart of England. You can find us on the web www.ctc-heartofengla
nd.org.uk We nornally have about a 20 mile ride around the area every Saturday morning from Tardebigge but due to the low temperatures forcasted this weekend we have cancelled this week's ride 8th December.
