Ride Report – Sunday 16th February

David went on Bill’s ride to Towcester and writes as follows.  He also took the pictures!

Bill led the annual ride to the A5 Rangers’ Cycle Jumble Sale at their clubhouse in Towcester.  This year we had a cold start but it was sunny through out the day: a respite from the record-breaking daily rainfall and gale-force winds we have had on the last few rides.

The club served tea and cake and the stalls had many vintage bicycle parts to buy.  Some of us bought super sized pannier racks and struggled to put them in our pannier bags!  I purchased a tool wallet, containing many useful tools, which will be easier to travel with. Max got large handlebars to enable him to breathe better whilst cycling.

Three of us returned back together to Northampton, passing a buzzard sitting on a hedge watching a earthy field for prey.  It promptly flew away as we passed by!
