  • the sunday earlybird was cancelled over a year ago due to lack of interest. most sunday’s there were no riders at all. a busy day would have been less than 3. nothing stopping anyone heading out. we just don’t want to advertise anything that we can’t support, or people that read the website think that there is a ride on and no-one turns up,
