Just an update for you all... After carful consideration and talks with Nigel over this matter....

I can confirm there will be a change in Format to this meet and there will be NO PUB MEAL at the end

Instead we will be stopping at one or two places which will allow Members to purchase their own Food and Drink and use the Toilets

Of course, if you wish, Please feel free to bring along your own Food and drink if you so wish..
I will be carrying some goodies myself to share out including Water.

I will be doing a route test this Sunday and just to confirm we have also decided to stay away from the coastal routes to avoid the heavy traffic being experienced in Dorset especially if the weather is good. For this Reason there will be no official destination this time out and so in essence this meet will run from Shaftesbury, returning to Shaftesbury later in the day .

Thank you for your understanding but our first priority is to stay Safe

So tested the route on Sunday and all good.... We will run from Shaftesbury to Shaftesbury but I will be stopping at Wilton on the way back to allow people who wish to leave at that point to start making there way home rather than coming all the way back to Shaftesbury.... :thumleft:

I'm going to have to bow out of this one unfortunately due to needing to bloody work that weekend (out of ALL the weekends in September, it had to be this one :x), which is a proper nuisance as it sounds like I was going to be very familiar with some of these roads and would have loved to bring up the rear keeping you lot honest in the Vectra.

So just to remind everyone. 10 am start at Tescos Shaftesbury. No pub meal on this one so feel free to bring your own grub/nibbles or pop into Tescos before we leave if you like.

Will be stopping In Salisbury at the Waitrose at approx 11.45 where you can get food/supplies. Also a Shell petrol station on site. If you fancy you can cross over to the other car park also where there is a Sainsburys.

I will also have a small supply of goodies with me.

Please remember to respect Social distancing rules and to stay safe.

Also please be aware there does seem to be many more cyclists about these days on the roads so please give them space.

Cheers everyone. We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday.
Drive safely.
