Ok, after the fun frolics and sucess of last years Christmas Night ride on the Shortest Night of the year (hence the name) we have decided to ramp it up a notch this year and get as many of you as we can to join us on this fun ride.

To make it a bit easier to help you make your mind up about coming there is a consequence of Not coming – you will be struck off the e-mail list and no longer receive the Buddies Weekly Wrap!
