Blue Ride to Ulley Reservoir (and café)

Not a bad day for a ride and after the rain and wind of the previous few days it was good to see so many ready to go. The task made more difficult by the barrier across the car park entrance. But with the majority lifting their bikes up and over all was well! The red ride left and we 10 waited for Matt to get us going. 9 over the top and outside the gates watched as Matt simply opened the gate walked through and closed it behind him. Thats what makes a ride leader!

Blue ride to Netherthorpe airfield and Café

The car park gate was locked but we didn’t care! in fact the red riders used it as a table one even leaving his banana as an offering to the rain gods. The weather was fine, a bit breezy possibly so the offering worked. Do rain gods actually eat the offerings - we didn’t. And precedent is everything so we aren’t going to follow the fine example.

Blue ride to Lets Ride in Sheffield

A nice warmish day for a ride and with so few Blue riders it was obviously going to be a bit further than usual. But, Red riders out of the way, we set off full of expectations and at a leisurely pace. Apy Hill Lane is not steep but may have been the most taxing slope on the days ride! We were hardly warmed up before we got to it but we were not to know that Matt was going to swap ‘hills’ for ‘interest’.

Blue ride to Arrow Farm Cafe

Yes there was sixteen of us... some folks are just plain camera shy! Competition... no prizes... who's the hidden rider?

Blue ride to Kiwi Café, Retford

There were 16, intending to take the Blue Ride, in the car park which we deemed should make 2 groups of 8 (Sunday remember - no adding up on fingers) and we set off intending to ride as two groups, and it worked well, through Harworth and Serlby right up to the point where Paul B had to squat on the pavement and play with his little bag of white powder. It didn’t take long so missed the exciting bit as it took time to get the camera out!

Blue Ride to TIA café

There were mixed feelings about the prospects , weather-wise, for the ride but we assembled in sunshine and were optimistic as always. A fair collection of Blue and Red riders eventually spit into two leaving 12 In the blue group further divided into two groups. Arithmetic not being essential the first group out of the gate numbered 7 leaving roughly 5 in the second group!

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.
