I’ve not been out on a club ride for ages now as the Sportives are taking up all of my spare time, so it was good to arrange a ride out to Jodrell Bank with Mick.
We met at Nova Cycles at 9:30am and being a Wednesday, all of the Newport Cycling Club members were there waiting for their midweek ride.
We got chatting to them and ended up tagging on to their faster group as they were heading up towards Cheswardine like us. We dropped off by Puleston as they were going the more scenic route and we wanted to go direct as we had a lot of road to cover today!
The rest of the ride to Jodrell Bank was easy and we were soon at the cafe stop. No baked potatoes today so we both opted for sandwiches, which were nice.
The ride back followed a slightly improved route in an attempt to avoid a rather busy section of main road. This worked out well and we stopped at the Swan With Two Necks for a quick pint on the way past.
All too soon we arrived back in Newport and popped into our sponsors for a quick end of ride pint.
A fab ride out in good company and it was great to catch up with news etc etc.
