Vets' Wednesday runs list

Any veteran, no matter how young, can join these. There is no formal ride as such, just a meeting point for lunch and a chat.  People ride solo or in small groups from all over the area surrounding Manchester. Arrival time at the lunch spot is 12.00 to 12.30 (ish).

South Manchester Vets ride as a group, and we meet at the Konak Cafe, 8 Grove Street, Wilmslow, most Wednesday mornings between 9.30 and 9.45.

We usually depart between 10.00 and 10.15 and ride from 40 to 70 miles, depending on the weather, time of year, and published lunchtime meeting place. Note that we do not always ride to the meeting places listed below, depending on the numbers riding and the location.

If you want to join one of these rides it is worth checking with our secretary, Harry Burton, whether we intend to ride on a particular day. Reasons for not riding include absence of several riders (e.g. on a tour elsewhere), bad weather etc.
