Social ride to the Most Shed for lunch


I’m finally getting round to catching up on some missing blog posts as I’ve not had time to write them as we’ve been away on holiday!

Today was a pre-arranged day for a Velothon Wales reunion ride. In the end, it was just me, John Watts, Nicole and Tracy and we’d decided to head out to the excellent Moat Shed near Wem.

We all met up in Hinstock and headed off out on our ride, following the same route Nic, Tracy and me had ridden on Easter Sunday. A really nice route too!


At the Moat Shed we’d pre-booked a table, which always seems to be a good idea these days as I get the distinct impression they don’t like cyclists in their wet and sweaty gear visiting.

After some lovely food, we headed back to Hinstock. On the way back we had to stop for about 200 cows to cross the lane in front of us. There was literally an orderly line of them stretching right across the field they were coming out of!


As we passed the Tiddly in Ellerdine Heath we decided to stop for a quick pint. Then back in Hinstock, we retired to the Falcon for a pint or two.

I then spent a lovely evening at Nic’s with a nice curry take away and a few more drinks, before heading home at nearly midnight.

A fab day out with friends and a fab ride too.
