Christmas Drinks and Mince Pies – 23rd December
On the way back from our normal Sunday ride there is an additional ride stop off on offer: Warm mince pies and mulled wine (or beer) chez Simon in Langford – address on club email and WhatsApp All members of Clevedon Cycling Club are welcome to dismount and enjoy a festive celebration of our morning ride. Laburnum Cottage is at the bottom of Redshard Lane (just off Stock lane next to the vet school)- its a gravelly path but please continue down to the bottom – the garage will be open for bikes to be left in while you enjoy some Christmas fare. I look forward to seeing as many members as possible. If ride captains on the day can think about a route that heads back through Langford to incorporate this stop that would be appreciated.
