Special New Year's Day ride to Brill

Monday, 1 January 2024 - 9:45am

Starting the New Year as we mean to continue, on our bikes. This year Brill is included to give a few more miles. Lunch will be at Sue and Niall’s house. Baked potatoes with a selection of fillings, salads and drinks will be provided. Any contributions for desserts or drinks would be very welcome and/or donations to Alzheimer’s Research UK. We can seat 14, so 12 spaces bookable. Please book on the website as usual, but check you are not number 13 or higher

Ride report

We were lucky in that it was the only dry and still day sandwiched between many wet and windy days. 12 riders gathered promptly at our house bringing supplements to the lunch I had prepared for after the ride. We cut a couple of miles off the ride as we knew that the Wood Eaton ride would be impassible from flooding. Otherwise it was a lovely ride with the surprise of coffee being available on the top of Brill Hill from the Brill coffee van (not usually there on a Monday). We returned for lunch of Baked potatoes, chilli toppings and salads along with desserts generously donated. Riders generously donated to Alzheimer’s Research and along with a couple of donations from family a total of £140 was raised.
