Recovery ride to Dearnford Lake with Nicole for lunch. Perfect weather too! Legs feel much better now!


It was the Jurassic Beast Sportive in Dorset yesterday so I’d arranged to meet up with Nicole today for a gentle spin to Dearnford Lake for lunch, A perfect wind down for my legs!

We met in Childs Ercall and headed off on my usual route to Dearnford chatting along the way. As we arrived we noticed the Newport club were all there sat out on the grass in the sun. After a nice catch-up we headed inside to order food.


What glorious weather with no clouds in the sky and bright sunshine. I could get used to days like this!

As we were eating lunch Andrew Craddock from the Raiders arrived and came over to sit with us. We had a nice catch up as I’d not seen him for ages too.


The three of us set off homewards with Andrew peeling off towards Newport in Market Drayton. Once back in Childs Ercall we both headed off home.

A fab ride in perfect weather and my legs feel so much better after that.
