NottinghamshireStarting from Trent Embankment War Memorial at 09.30. 42 miles, Average . This is the first ride of the recently re-named, Nottinghamshire Group. Normally on the second Sunday of each month, but this being Easter, I have decided it may suit better to have it the week before, on the 5th April. May onwards, will revert to the second Sunday. The meeting place will rotate monthly between the south location as above and a north location around the Blidworth area. There is free parking in both locations. As we progress, the format can be tweeked to suit/improve. Looking forwrad to meeting those that can make it. There will be a stop for coffee/food at the Bison Farm, Nether Broughton.
