Blue ride to Clumber Park

We wandered and weaved about the car park chatting as we waited, Mick (L) was ready for severe cramps and asthma having the witches mix for both should they be needed. With no decisions to be made - Hobson’s choice as the other rides and riders were someplace else looking for hills. Off we went in twos, well one of us didn’t, but we were happy enough at a leisurely pace.

Blue ride to Lemon Tree

Fed, watered and warm in The Lemon Tree Tea Room, Epworth.

Blue ride to Thrybergh Country Park

Brilliant sunshine and the promise of warmer weather to come saw me freezing to death at the cricket club surrounded by a host (well 11) of highly insulated and more observant also rans! (or would that be “also cycled”?). But I did have tan lines (blue?) on show from the previous Sunday ride.

Blue ride to Southwell

Spot the difference...

Blue ride to Cafe de Bella, Retford

Now... knees bent, smile...

Blue ride to Netherthorpe airfield

We were blessed with 2 ride leaders today, or 1 ride coordinator who led the ride and 1 ride leader who rode at the back! The guy at the front: Matt Lowe (official ride coordinator), Hilary Thompson, Mick Lee, Diane Jordan, Christina Cooper, Kevin Thomas, Paul Rhodes Diana Simpson and Paul Bacon (the ride leader at the back)

Blue ride to Markham Grange

Bikes, bonsai and brilliant scones.

Blue ride to Everton

With no ride posted and the forecast terrible it was surprising to see so many bikes and riders hiding in the changing room. Runners were also gathering - is this the future?

Blue Ride - an O.A.P. special

The forecast of high winds, rain, and for some a cycling course away from home, kept many at home in n bed. Despite this the cricket club car park was packed with Lycra clad enthusiasts.

Blue ride to Skyays bar

We politely waited whilst Red and purple rides cleared the car park and then let Matt lead us off towards Harworth. Triple the number of riders I have got used to but no complaints from me. Despite the weather forecast the wind was nowhere and it wasn’t raining.
