Brian, our Rides Secretary, went on this ride led by Phil L and writes:
It was quite cool on Saturday morning (3°C) but the roads were not icy. Four of us set out from our Brampton Valley Way meeting point up through Church Brampton and then across to Althorp. We had the wind behind us as we made our way through West Haddon and Long Buckby to Yelvertoft on very quiet country lanes. Then we turned south into the breeze as we made our way down National Cycle Route 50 through Crick and Ashby St Legers, great countryside on quiet roads. As we approached Daventry there was hail in the
wind and we were glad to stop for coffee at the Country Park café which we almost had to ourselves. The last stage back to Northampton was a bit of a battle against the wind and it felt much colder with a hint of rain in the air, although we did not get seriously wet.
Many thanks to Phil L for leading the ride which was just right for a breath of fresh air on a winter’s morning.
