Blue Ride to the 10 Green Bottles in Retford

Weather reports were mixed but despite forecast of rain being less than 6% it rained! The Blue, Purple and Red riders mingled before splitting up into whichever group took their fancy and left with gaps to give separation on the roads, although I think we each (group) went separate ways.

Blue Ride to Retford

I didn’t think the forecast was too good but things started cold and got better as we gathered at the Cricket Club. The destination was set and the route hastily worked out on the tarmac and explained to the riders. For some of us the joy of cycling is often diminished by knowing how we get there. Ok I admit I often don’t remember what was said anyway!

Sun and smiles after being fed and watered.

Blue Ride To Epworth

We all met - yes “all” at the cricket club at 9am. The Red ride to be led by a man who took off his red jacket before leading out; the returning 7am ride (do they have a colour?); the blue ride to be led by a man in orange ( more soon) and a purple ride to be led by a man in TVC regalia. Quite a gathering and probably a big improvement on what went before.

Red (9:00) Club ride to Barnburgh Lakes

A chilly Sunday morning but the sun was shining, it wasn't windy and it wasn't raining. I'll take that every time!
