A Clean or Dirty Weekend - Dirty Saturday (2021)

Meet the 'other mob' at the start of your ride, and then venture forth on quiet, scenic rides north of the 'madding crowd'. Ride HQ is the Sir John Franklin Hotel on the main street. Great facilities and very generous tariffs! But other accomodation choices also available for riders. Each loop starts & finishes from the town square opposite.
