Sunday ride to Aston and Finstock

Sunday, 10 January 2016 - 9:30am

Ride report

As we rode out west, there were blue skies to our left. Then it began to rain – but nothing more than a few light showers as promised by the met office. It is not unusual to be held up by floods – but thankfully on this occasion we were alerted and turned back in time. It is, however, more unusual to be held back by sheep – just one of the pleasures of being out and about on our local country lanes. Another of the day’s pleasures was the kind lady driver who did an emergency stop to avoid crushing an expensive cycling computer which had somehow dislodged itself and had landed on the road in front of her. Women drivers! They are the best.
