Blue Ride to Leger Lakes

This was the Scarborough Charity ride weekend but no Red ride had been announced so the anticipation had been for either a lot or a few to turn up. As it turned out we were a nice round dozen. The weather was in our favour, bright and sunny (ish) and there were few bare arms.

Blue ride t Potteric Carr

A nice sunny start to the day saw us sitting about outside for a change at the cricket club with lots of chatter about the previous days Flat 100 and the impressive finishers. Red and Blue riders were growing in number and after the red group left to go to Askern Lakes we, the Blue ride, were 14.

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 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.
