Updates

Due to the pocket guide going to print in July sometimes events have to change for the actual festival due to circumstances beyond our control. Please check the Walk and Ride Festival website for up to date advice.



EVENT 20: South Crosland Airfield Ride-cancelled due to lack of bookings.



EVENT 71: A Taste of Le Tour – deleted



EVENT 72: Mary Towneley Loop Endurance-Unfortunately this year’s event has had to be cancelled due to the low number of entries received so far. Refunds for the current entrants will be processed ASAP.  Any questions please email: events@rpmrt.org.uk 



EVENT 114: In the Footsteps of Outlaws and Legionaries-incorrect postcode in pocket guide. Event will meet at Ogden Reservoir, Ogden Lane, Newhey, OL16 3TQ. We are trying to secure a walk leader to meet at Ogden Reservoir, Halifax as an alternative but have nothing sorted as yet.
