Meteor Madness

An MB Swindon club ride!

Tom Scott will be leading this ride to look at some meteors in the night sky. The ride will be timed to take in a coffee break at Marlborough and a meteor viewing opportunity at Barbury Castle!

The ride is planned to be 25 to 30 miles (40-50km), depending on weather. As such, we will be out for about 4 hours and you will need lights. The ride back is not technical so a decent set of commuting lights will suffice.

Due to the distance involved and light conditions this ride is not novice friendly.

Darkness adds an extra dimension to off-road cycling, so please ensure that your bike is working properly and you have spare tubes etc.
