Sunday ride to Waterperry and Benson

Sunday, 2 February 2014 - 9:30am

Ride report

When looking online for Sunday’s weather, nothing gladdens the heart so much as to see this symbol. [[{“fid”:”11635″,”view_mode”:”default”,”type”:”media”,”attributes”:{“height”:30,”width”:30,”style”:”line-height: 1.538em; border:0;”,”class”:”media-element file-default”}}]] We don’t see many of these in February, but last Sunday we were lucky. No doubt that’s why we had 18 for coffee at Waterperry and that doesn’t include our youngest ever participant. At just eighteen months old, he was probably too young to appreciate the considerable effort expended by dad as he was towed up Gidley Way.

A warm welcome to 4 new members. Hope you enjoyed your day 🙂
