John W led this Steady ride to Wilbarston and writes:
On the way to the ride start my bike suffered a front wheel puncture at the Vineyard in Earls Barton. This meant I had to turn around and get my only bike left, my Giant TCR with FFWD wheels and Tubs fitted. After changing shoes and seat height, I still managed to make it to the Co-op at Moulton in time.
Seven riders set out for The Milking Parlour at Wilbarston. After passing John Coddington just after Old, he turned around and joined us, and continued to a cafe he had never visited. The eight of us enjoyed some excellent savory food, before setting off for home.
We left John C just outside Mawsley, where he lives, and the rest of us continued on a reversal of our route out. I waited at the Holcot turn off, but after some time, continued home after no sight of other riders. A very brisk wind made our route home more difficult, but I think everyone enjoyed the morning ride. Despite some gravel sections on the return my Tubs proved to be fine.
