B run

I can take the B run to Croome Park. Noticed the C run took a longish ride there a few weeks ago so maybe a similar route.

B run

Tomorrow's B run will be following one of the routes from the club database, http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Be ... roome-Park

Looks like it will be a damp one.

Depending upon how I am feeling in the morning, I will can the A run to Croome, via a direct route if wet. Shall post a message in the morning if unable to lead.

An impromptu c run to kenilworth and with just the 7 of us meant that we were able to use the tea rooms by the castle (time for tea?). Managed to dodge the showers although with hindsight a venue a little further south may have helped avoid some of the headwind on the return leg.
Thanks to Dave Little for support and other riders for their company, an enjoyable morning

B run

A soggy but steady B run to Croome Park. Two flats, thanks to Phil & Kevin for helping (well, completing) mine. Unfortunately, Croome Park had ran out of bacon, the A run denied they'd had it all.

A RUN - CROOME PARK

One burst tyre, three toilet stops, no bacon, plenty of puddles, one dodgy builder and enjoyable day.

Out: Tardebigge, Flying Pig Lane, Bishampton.
Rtn: Crowle, Chaddesley Woods.

Good to see a new rider join us today, in the form of Canadian Nathan Cardon.

At a personal level, I would like to thank everyone for lifting my spirits following a number of dreadful days.

I'd like to say thanks to John for stepping up and leading the C run at the last minute and also thanks to Andy for his support when I was struggling on the way back from the cafe, I really appreciated it.

Thanks John for the C ride, was a great route just a shame we can't do much with the weather, just after me and Jordan left you on the way home the heavens opened and soaked me before I arrived at my door. :(

Another good ride.

Thanks to Philip and all for a great adventure on the archetypical blustery day.
Good to see that a Lezyne pump is still the best way to remove a Conti valve core
