New – a report from Barry on the Saturday ride on 28th July.

‘The normal road ride was cancelled due to the very high winds forecast (50MPH) making it unsafe for group riding. Despite it being July, we went for one of our winter options for an off road ride. So, the plan was changed to a 90Km route mainly on the forest trails with a minimum of road to link those trails. The mix of bikes was 50/50 cross / MTB. After just 30 mins Barry got a nasty split in his rear tyre that couldn’t be repaired at the roadside so Julie was called out to rescue. The rest of the riders returned to Barry’s house for an additional coffee stop where by luck Julie had baked a batch of scones, so an additional stop was made whilst Barry did a bike change. Then back on the trails for a very enjoyable ride. We had one other puncture which Phil J dealt with in very quick time.

Most of the riders did around 90-100Km on the trails but our regular mile monster Phil G managed over 160Km so chapeau to him – again! ‘
