Turbo Tuesday - July 14th 2015 - Soggy weather didn't stop the Wattbombs!

Last Nights ride was pretty great.  Well attended, despite the call for passing showers which did happen. Corners were a little slower, but still the average speed for the ride was over 32KPH. Thanks everyone for coming out, jamming hard, and dropping all the #wattbombs.  

Cheers,

Dan.

This was us waiting for the Train that never…

Friendly Reminder... Need I say more?

Rider Responsibilities - Please Read and Comment

I think this will really help our club be safe and ultimately result in the enjoyment for all riders. Let me know what you think.
