Any last minute changes to account for the weather are communicated by private messaging to the known participants. The number of groups and speed/distance depends on how many turn up and how many leaders we have, but we aim to have at least one group, sometimes two.

For non-members thinking of joining the club, E-mail us at multisport@windmilers.org.uk if you're planning to come along so we don't leave without you!
