Steady social ride to the Moat Shed with Nicole and Tracy plus to Newport Cricket Club for a pint


I’d arranged with Nicole to go out for a steady pedal with her and Tracy to the excellent Moat Shed near Wem.

I rode over to Nic’s house to meet as arranged and then we all set off on the route. This took us up past Goldstone Hall and then through Stoke On Tern, Hodnet and onwards to the Moat Shed.


As it was Easter weekend, we’d phoned ahead to reserve a table so on arrival we had no issues. The only problem being they had a special 3 course Easter dinner on a set menu and if we ate that much we’d never be able to ride our bikes back! Thankfully they agreed we could just have the cheese and biscuits each off the desert section!


After lunch we headed back off homewards via Wem. Another nice ride with lots of chatting and we were soon in Childs Ercall where they headed back off to Hinstock and I’d decided to ride down to Newport to see if any of the Sunday 10am riders were in the New Inn.

I texted Jon Steer and he said he was in the Newport Cricket Club and the bar was open so come on down. I duly arrived and a few pints and a catch up was had.

Another fab day out on the bike in great company.
