Back-up plan if wetIf the heavens open up to try to dampen our festive mood on the day (and our riding) then we'll go to plan "B", which is to bring all that food, drink and xmas cheer around to Mandy and Johns place, 38 Rototai rd, around midday and we'll crank up the BBQ, eat, drink and TALK about riding!!Please BYO plate, glass and cutlery. So if the weather is looking a bit dodgey in the morning give John a call on 525 7347 for details.
