We’ve been holding our meetings on the first Tuesday of each month for a couple of years now, but changes in schedules mean that this is no longer convenient and we’ve decided to switch to meeting on the second Monday instead – starting with Monday 9th April at 6 pm
Unfortunately a Monday meeting means our regular pub, the Coach and Horses will not be open, so instead we will meet at the Riverside Bar in Dock Park. Please adjust your calendars accordingly!
What won’t change is that our meetings will continue to be informal and friendly, with all welcome to attend. For our April meeting we’ll largely be planning the events coming up in spring – from the Buddies accessible bike day on the 14th April to a planned joint wildlife ride with Caerlaverock WWT in June, as well as updating our summer runs schedule. However, if you’ve any burning issue you want raised or have plans for events we could be involved in, please do let us know.
