The Lon Las Cymru 2018

A group of club members are planning to ride Lon Las Cymru this August. Nine people are definitely going. They are going as a group with no nominated leader and riders will need their own insurance arrangements. Paul and Mick are booking the transport and Gayle the accommodation. Anyone else who would like to join the group is very welcome – contact any of us via email or on Monday nights.
