Eleanor went on this ride, led by Ian M, and writes:
Eight of us arrived promptly at the Brampton Valley Way (BVW) near The Windhover for our ride, a loop around Daventry. One new rider (Ken from Morecambe) who was visiting family in the area joined us. We set off enjoying blue sky and sunshine – which lasted all day – along familiar and then less-well-known lanes taking in lovely views over a very green countryside. After our coffee stop at The Willows in Barby, we left on schedule along quiet lanes dotted with gates and cattle grids to negotiate. Our final obstacle was a flock of sheep we herded along and off into a field before arriving at The Windmill in Badby for lunch.
With the few delays and after a longer lunch we eventually got moving and headed for home. Four of us split just before Flore, the rest heading back to BVW. I hope you all arrived safely home and like me enjoy a great day out.
Thanks to Ian M for his time in organizing and leading the ride.
