Phil L led this ride to Newport Pagnell and writes:
The six of us who turned out for today’s ride, stood blinking for a while in a strange new light, trying to figure out what was different about the day. Ah yes! It wasn’t raining and that ethereal light was sunshine!
It was good to welcome new rider Wojter from Poland who proved to be a fit addition to our group as we made brisk progress out via Ashton and Castlethorpe to Newport Pagnell for coffee plus. I say that because the owner of the cafe we dropped into wasn’t keen for “Coffees only” orders which “forced” us pretty willingly to go for bacon butties etc.
The return route via NR6 and Salcey made it just about 40 miles and in time for the rugby!
