0th EDITION OF THE FOREST OF DEAN CLASSIC DATE CHANGE NEW DATE SUNDAY 13th JULY 2014 10Th FOREST OF DEAN CLASSIC MOVES TO A SUMMER DATE Unfortunately due to over running road works and a clash of events in the same area, we have for safety reasons postponed until the July date. Our traditional route will not be fully available until early summer and with the rider’s safety paramount we didn’t want to ruin the ride by changing routes for this very special date. We want to keep with our unique route and hopefully this date move to Sunday 13th July will enable us to miss the above problems and avoid any event clash on the same roads. We hope that the weather will also favour us at this time of year. Due to the date change we can now move the start and finish back into the town of Monmouth as in previous years. More details will be announced over the next few days and we will automatically transfer your entries to the new date. If this new date is unsatisfactory we will also transfer to the 201
