Sunday ride to Thrupp and Finstock

Sunday, 18 December 2016 - 9:30am

We expect to see part of a traditional mummers play at the The Plough Inn in Finstock

Ride report

A different choice of route to the A40 crossing and a loop into Thrupp from the north gave variety to this mid-winter ride. Lunchtime conversation too had its moments when a relatively innocent comment about where to purchase mirror tiles soon had us pondering the latest Ann Summers’ “playful” Christmas offers. Some of the puzzled frowns were genuine.
