Something to look forward to in the new year, a audax social reunion,  now in its 4th year and always good fun

Sort your own digs out and meet us for a evening of tales from the saddlebag.

A chance for some winter miles
Who's coming?

As one of the usual suspects, I can confirm I'm easily persuaded. Last year's event was a good one! 8)

I've pencilled it (literally!) into my (new) 2018 diary!!

Would it be the usual place at 'Spoons?

Looking forward to it already!!   :thumbsup:

I'm sure Postie will confirm the plan later.

Normally various groups ride (either social ride or audax 200 DIY) from home to Salisbury, aiming to arrive in time for a drink and a restaurant meal out in Salisbury, preceded or followed by more chat and drinks at the King's Head Wetherspoons, 1 Bridge Street, Salisbury, or a nearby smaller traditional pub later. Twin rooms in 'Spoons available upstairs (bikes allowed in rooms) currently around £75 on booking.com or stay at the Youth Hostel or alternatively, catch the train home on Saturday night.

In, as above.
Have you got a track of the route? I could back track from Middle Earth to pick you up as you head out.
