HAB May special 2 day ride out.

HAB ‘2-day Ride Out’ – May 2nd & 3rd 2018

The monthly weekday ride out in May will be replaced with a 2-day event to include an overnight stay in the Scottish Borders.

John Blanchfield and I got our heads together and decided it would be nice to do something more adventurous for a change.

We hope you like what we have come up with and that you will be able to join us.

Places are limited, so please let me know asap.
