Milton led this ride and writes:
Chilly and breezy but with the sun shining, there was little not to enjoy on this ride other than it was the day after Christmas and we were all knackered or hung over or both!
Ten of us set off, James, as ever, faster than the rest, and had an easy 20 mile trip to the café at Salcey via Castle Ashby, Olney and Ravenstone. Coffee and cake consumed in the fresh air, apart from the three big girl’s blouses who sat in the warmth – how pathetic was that – before we all set off home for the final few miles via Quinton and Preston Deanery. James, on his brand new and very impressive Cannondale punctured, (isn’t it always the way) but wasn’t held up much as he had Peter helping with the replacement and Peter’s hands weren’t frozen, (unlike the rest of us) as he had been sitting indoors in the café. Northern Softie!
Good to have Danny with us for the first time as well as Geoff and John back again and promising to become regulars.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to us all!
