A Reminder About Bunch Rides

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

To all members. The article, reproduced below, is a timely reminder of the joys and etiquette of bunch rides. As the article says, a bunch ride is exactly that - a bunch ride - not a surgefest, or dangerfest like overtaking over double lines on a descent.

Please read this and remember why you first started doing bunch rides, it's about fun and friendship - also if you want to race, then race - Beauie is the perfect venue to test your strength and speed, not a club bunch ride.
