Sunday ride to Waterperry and Islip

Sunday, 24 January 2016 - 9:30am

Ride report

Sixteen for coffee and met another 2 for lunch. We were pleased to note that the rider who drove to lunch by car a few weeks ago, this time rode his bike. We applaud this development and long may it continue. The leader, distracted from his Garmin by tales of cycling adventure, took us by an unplanned and indirect route to coffee. Those who noticed were too polite to comment, while the rest trustingly followed their leader – as they should.
