Sunday ride to Aston

Sunday, 31 December 2017 - 10:00am

A chance to work off the Christmas excesses before the New Year! Therefore no cake on route and 23 miles to lunch at Aston where we may be joined by the Isis Cyclists before taking a more direct and flat route home.

Ride report

As the week progressed, the weather grew milder and dryer. By Sunday, 15 riders had decided to join this New Year’s Eve special. The earlier torrential rain left the roads flooded but passable. As we headed north from Aston after lunch, mudguards were essential – what at first sight looked like mud turned out not to be just mud on closer inspection.
