  1. Remember to let us know if you are coming to the fantastic end-of-season BBQ at the fabulous Redhill.
    Make sure you add Slack Channel #bigfoot-summer-bbq to your feed and post if you’re coming so we have an idea of numbers to cater for.

    Entry for club-riders to Redhill will be covered by your favourite MTB club, together with traditional BBQ fare from Darryl’s favourite butcher.

    If you want something ‘special’ then feel free to bring your own Tuna Steaks / Halumi Burgers / Wagu Beef etc and throw it on the fire.

    All part of being a member of Gloucestershire’s Premier MTB club! 🙂

  2. Will be there. Cycling up from Ciren to get the clicks up if anyone coming from that way. Will be trying out my new lights for the ride back if they arrive in time!

  3. I’m a maybe, although I might not ride with you for the whole two hrs as I need to get back for ‘stuff’! That and I’m not sure what state my lights are in these days…
