It is that time of year when the clocks go back, as soon as they do we have a jolly around Rutland water in the darkness.

Tuesday 27th October we meet up at the horse and jockey at Manton LE158SU. I shall be there at 18:30 hrs for a 18:45 start. one lap anti clockwise then into the Horse & Jockey for a cheeky pint.

expected average speed 12-13 mph. doesn't sound fast but it can be hard to achieve in the dark; plus we stop to gaze at the stars and lake and of course we go round Normanton church. nice!

if your coming you need a mountain bike or cyclo x with awesome lamps. (we turn rear lamps off when off rd)

The track round the lake is mainly hard pack mill waste with a bit of mud through the woodland sections the tarmac cycle path and road on the route through Egelton.


the event is on face book but only as a private event as we dont want the whole of the east midlands turn up lol. Laughing there is usually between 6 and 12 of us

See ya there Tuesday 27th october 18:45 Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
