A dozen riders set off for the Christmas Eve edition of the series of Saturday training rides led as always by Barry Wootten. Around 43 miles for the full ride, with a couple of the riders peeling off early for domestic committments.
After several miles of warm-up there were a couple of worthwhile sessions of ‘through & off’ with riders working really well as a group as everybody got the hang off it.
Their efforts were rewarded at around 2/3 distance when Julie Wootten turned up with a boot-full of mince pies & mulled wine!
And you could tell it was Christmas because all of the drivers were being patient & courteous – well, apart from the one going down Bolderwood!
It was a great finish to the year’s riding (well, only a few riding days left) and it may be the start of a new date on the club’s calendar, we’ll have to see what happens next year.
Thanks are sent to Barry from everybody that’s taken part during the year, and of course to Julie for the ‘dietary supplements’.

VC Venta riders filled the […]
