The plan for Saturday 11th February was to run both a brisk and a moderate ride to the Skylark Cafe in Staverton near Daventry. Here’s how it went…
Six hardy riders were setting out to ride; Phil Letts rang in sick – and then there were five.
Five hardy riders at Hunsbury Library door; Brian had the wrong bike, and then there were four.
Four hardy riders started in the freeze; Milton wasn’t feeling brisk, and then there were three.
Three hardy riders made it through the snow; John raced off to see TV, and then there were two.
Chris and Philip found a jam(*); diverting on the Norbital, they easily made it home.
Philip went on one more loop, and then there was one.
A good morning out despite zero degrees, snow, rain and generally wintry conditions! Thanks to all for their company.
Philip (with apologies to “Anon”!)
