Dear cyclists, I am sorry to say that I have been obliged to cancel the Muddy Monsters event at Hitchin on Saturday 3rd March owing to the weather conditions which pose serious risks for competitors both on and travelling to the course. I hope to find a possible future date for a go-ride racing event at this venue in Hitchin and will let you know in due course.
