Ride report: Saturday 11th January

Phil L led this ride and writes:

What a great day for a ride! Bright winter sunshine and no rain – what’s going on?!! So good was the weather in fact, ten of us turned out a brisk and bumpy ride to Irchester Country Park. An excellent opportunity to ‘burn off’ some of that Christmas pud!

Splitting into two groups meant we could cater for different riding speeds and appetites and I think we all enjoyed breezing through the villages of Whiston, Castle Ashby, Bozeat and Hinwick before regrouping at the country park for coffee and cake refuelling!

We split again for the return via the Wollaston-Great Doddington route which incidently is still rideable for bikes despite closure notices for vehicles while they strengthen the bridge over the river -there’s a footbridge available for pedestrians.

My thanks to Brian for leading the other group today.
