A busy time...

We've also had riders continuing to cycle, well done to Steve Meacock on his recent distance rides and Steve Cartledge for his second place finish at Oulton Park!!
Riders are also continuing to fundraise, well done Paul on his Devil's challenge and to Anna and Sarah who sold out of cakes in extra quick time!
