Sunday ride to Waterperry and Stanton St John

Sunday, 5 January 2014 - 9:30am

STOP PRESS! Lunch at The Talkhouse, Stanton St John

Ride report

Weather was a lot better than feared – no sign of ice and no floods on our route. Given the poor forecasts, seven was a good number (and we missed an eighth only because of the late lunch time switch). Good to see that 2 of those who crashed on ice last week were out again today and this time were rewarded with blue skies and lovely winter landscapes, the rain holding off until we were well on our way home. The pub – The Talkhouse in Stanton St John – was new to most of us and we can recommend it without reserve. There was some (brief) discussion about the possibility of a club holiday in France. Wouldn’t that be great!
