IMG_1853The Guild Wheel Children in Need ride was well supported. Well done the young riders who rode some 28 miles on a cold day. Some imaginative Fancy Dress but if there was a family prize it would have been won by the Endersby Bears. Thanks to all the coaches who turned up to see us all safely around the route, thanks to the Crooks family who kept us supplied us with provisions and thanks to Matthew for providing the Blood Wagon, which was only used for one late puncture. See the pictures and video on the Ribble Valley Juniors Facebook page and Here

The Children in Need Night Ride was held on a surprisingly warm Friday 15th
Well attended on a shorter but interesting route, ridden at a faster pace than previous years the riders arrived at the Plough before midnight. After refreshments, a welcome hotpot and the odd drink, the riders set off to return completing a circular tour south of the club base by the early hours of Saturday morning. Thanks to RVJ coaches who guided the ride safely and thanks to Kevin for the organisation. Details of monies raised are being assessed and will be advised.

Steve Cox is recovering and we wish him well. In response to the kind queries from members please note that his bike is OK !
