Great ride out to Dearnford Lake in the sunshine for lunch with friends


This weekend Nicole had some friends from Perth in Australia staying and I’d been invited along to the various rides with them. Today was a leisurely ride out to Dearnford Lake for lunch.

I cycled over to Hinstock from home and met up with the others and off we set. We were going a different route than normal and got ourselves a bit lost in Market Drayton (see the picture above where we were debating the best way to get back on track!).


Once we’d worked out how to rectify the routing error we were back on the usual route to Dearnford but in the reverse direction to normal.

It was beautiful weather and we opted to sit outside by the lake for lunch. I had to do my usual ‘tart of the day’, which was absolutely delicious.


We then set off back to Hinstock on the reverse route and via Tibberton. At the end of the ride we retired to Nic’s for a beer and then I made my way home via Childs Ercall.

A really great ride out and lovely to meet Dave and Sandie from Australia too.
