Hoppers Rollers New Year

Date: 20 November 2013

It’s back! The next Hoppers Rollers pre-match cycle will be the start and end of your New Year’s resolutions. A post Christmas Fat Burner is planned for 4th January followed by the first team fixture vs Chester.

Meet at 7:30 for breakfast with a start of 8.15am. Lunch is served at 1.00pm with the match kicking off at 2.30. The cost is £25 to enter.

Again there will be two routes.  Route 1 is the Heavy Rollers route and will incorporate the famous Nick of Pendle climb out of Clitheroe.  Route 2 is the Christmas Puddings route for those who have really over indulged and will be a flatter course for more social riders.  Both routes will be in a similar area with a stop planned in Whalley at the newly opened Beacon Bikes shop for mulled wine and mince pies included in the price.
