Leader:
Roger Postbeschild
Start Time:
10:30 am
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Social rides up to 24km (15 miles), usually with a cafe stop, at a riding pace of 13-16km/h (8-10mph). Please check website on the morning of the ride if the weather is poor as it may be cancelled or the start time changed.
TEMPERATURE HAS HELD UP LOCALLY SO THIS MORNINGS RIDE IS ON. Not sure about the beautiful pink sunrise though!
No off-road excitement in this one, staying in The Vale with coffee at the re-opened coffee shop in Stanford.
Report:
Well, the pretty pink sunrise was indeed the precursor of some light rain. note to self, take more notice of such things!
Starting out in the dry, 6 riders set off, with Lizzie and Martyn recovering from bouts of flu. Lee Ann also found out why most people in the winter ride with mudguards - prompting 'can you get mudguards to fit this bike?' questions. The answer is, most probably, yes.
Care was needed as there was still some slushy snow around on the side roads, particularly those shaded from the sun by hedges.
Coffee was taken at the re-vitalised Stanford Coffee Shop (ex Huddle) which is now open longer hours. The rain had now stopped and the return to OMH was uneventful.
Here's hoping for a nice warm dry ride next week. Well, I can live in hope rather than expectation!
Distance:
27.60 km (17.15 mi)
