A new year calls for a New Years Day ride to blow away the cobwebs!
I’d thus volunteered to lead a Club ride of about 30 miles at midday. Probably not the best thing I’ve ever done as I was feeling a bit ropey myself, despite not having drunk any alcohol on New Year’s Eve!
Anyway, the day dawned to pretty heavy rain but as I’d committed to run the ride I set off on my bike to Newport to see if anyone had turned up for the ride. I was just resigning myself to a solo ride when Jacko arrived. At least I’ll now have fab company for my ride!
We set off and had a pretty steady 30 miles over a flattish route towards Great Bolas and Stanton Upon The Line Heath. I opted to head straight home to warm up after the ride.
