Ride Calendar Archive

This is a record of all rides starting from January 2024. In the past we have simply removed rides from the ride calendar once they have happened and so had no record of which rides used what routes and when.

Why have an archive?

Mainly so that ride leaders can check to see if the route they are considering has already been ridden within the past few months. If it has, we encourage them to consider a different one so we can keep the rides as varied as possible. Also the archive may well be of general interest to members and others visiting our site.
