Last week we thought summer had arrived, this week a big reality check, it hasn’t. Back to cool windy damp days.
Only around 20 riders turned up for today’s club runs. The “B” run was due to head out into the hills of Bradfield, but in light of the
forecast, they decided to tag along with the “A” run to Birkin. Both groups set off together until we reached Cudworth bypass where the
two groups split evenly. The “A” group was lead by Dek, which included a long loop around Snaith. In light of the forecasted rain and
darkening skies the “B” group opted for a more direct route through Akworth, Darrington, Cridling Stubbs and Beal. We got there just
before the rain started.
The cafe was unusually quiet which meant we could sit inside and the service was very quick. In fact it was so quick, we were ready to set
off back again just as the “A” group was arriving. They were just a little damp around the edges having been caught out in a few light
The ride back home was the same way as we arrived with the “B” group. Barely a light shower was to be had, far better than what the
forecast was giving out. Only one problem on the way home, a slow puncture for Jack, so overall a good day out!
