Club runs - 10th January

Post by WorcsPhil » 04 Jan 2016 08:37

After a ridiculously wet start to the year, where amazingly nearly 20 riders turned out in an assortment of appropriate clothing, drier weather must be in order this week.

A: Evesham - Keith Adcock
B: Pershore - Neil Orchard
C: Kinver - Andy Wrightson

Hi

Andy Wrightson has volunteered to lead a lumpy C run to Kinver on Sunday, but he can't post on here for some reason, so has asked me to post this.

Cheers

Hels

Congrats Andy on taking a club run. You will have to go a little easier on people than you were to me on Thursday!

Keith and Neil, do you have the routes Garmin available?

Ha! I wish I had the ability to control people, but I'm just the messenger!

C run to Kinver
A shorter route than usual, but good fun and lots of riders + lots of new riders. The cafe on Kinver Edge looked very busy so we carried on to Olgas in Kinver - good service considering that there were so many of us.

Yes, thanks Keith, a sprightly A-run for a January day.

Great to see nearly 50 riders out today (including Lemmy on the A-run for one last hurrah)...was that the good weather or the popularity of the leaders?

I'll add Chris Ashford to the list who appeared on both A and B rides at various times, and possibly both cafes.

Thanks Andy and Dave for yesterday's C run, it was good fun, and good to be on a club run again after nearly six months off. Lovely day for it too.

Apologies for shooting off the B ride. Not normally my style, but I was getting really cold and needed to put in some efforts to try and warm up.

It sounds like i missed the excitement on the B run!

Chris
