Up Coming Tandem Cycling 21 March Cancelled

We regret to inform you that this event has been cancelled with immediate effect; until further notice. This is due to the current health situation.

In line with recent government guidance around non-essential contact and unnecessary travel, in order to minimise the spread of Covid-19, it is with regret that the MSSC committee has taken the reluctant decision to suspend all MSSC events and activities until further notice.
