Nottingham Classic Ride report – Sunday 23rd September

While many CTC Northampton members were taking part in “Cycle 4 Cynthia“, I attended the “Nottingham Classic“.

Julian Bentley was the host/organiser and he promised – and delivered – “A Bike Ride with added Style, Culture and Entertainment”.

Bicycle belles at Wollaton Hall

There were great prizes for those entering into the spirit of things: Gold, Silver and Bronze for each category: well-polished bikes, preened wardrobes and riding etiquette!

We started from the War Memorial on Victoria Embankment, enjoyed a morning coffee stop at Wollaton Hall and had lunch at the University Park where we were entertained by Gypsy Jazz duo Maniere Des Bohemians.  At the end of the ride, socialising continued in the Ferry Boat Inn, Wilford.  Route here.  Reported in Nottingham Evening Post.

An excellent day!  A fabulous time!
