Event wise several of us from Tarvin Cycling Club completed the Manchester 100 on Sunday 1st of September.
Four men cycled the 100 mile route and a mixed group of 8 completed the 100km route through the Cheshire countryside. The annual event is organised by Christie Hospital and started and finished in Wythenshawe Park.
Today Sunday 15th September two of us are off to the Wiggle Shropshire Mynd on a 100km course which as its name implies takes in the Long Mynd.
We are always happy for new members to join us on our weekly rides which take place on Sunday mornings during the Autumn and Winter.
