Re: Gotland Grand National (Sweden)

I'm tempted by this. Maybe we could enter a small team.

Re: Llanfyllin Bunkhouse April 27th

I am happy to lead a greenlane ride.
However, there is a slight chance I will be out of the country that weekend.
If I cannot make it I will cancel here as soon as I know.

Re: Shropshire meeting 30 Aug - 1 Sep 2019

I'll be there and I am happy to lead a greenlane ride. Thankfully at Rathlinghope we are in the heart of the Shropshire greenlanes, so there wont be an hour's commute to get to the area (and back therefrom).
