Clubruns NOVEMBER

Sunday 01 November 2015

November but you wouldn't know it......shorts and mitts and Summer bikes.

Nine were at Handforth (Andy, Baz, Dave H, Dave W, Ian, John L, Mally, Paul and Tony).

Misty in parts and blue sky in others all day but warm enough and no wind so all was well.

Most of the group went to Audlem, Mally and John did half day, my ride certainly wasn't half day.....I opted for an extended version and carried on to Market Drayton on a big loop with lots of new tiny lanes, 110 miles for me. (85 for the Audlem guys).

One of those days where you just don't want it to go dark.

Sunday 15 November 2015. - Mow Cop loop.

A wet start today so only Andy, Ian and Simon were out, we were joking by the single Velo member stood at Handforth.

We dicided to sack the lunch stop as Simon had to be back for 1130, we rode together for the first 20miles when Simon headed for home, father and I headed up Mow Cop and Lask Edge to throw a few lumps in.

54 miles for me. Stayed pretty much dry all day too and was back for 1315.

Just Simon, Ian and Jonathan at Handforth today. Andy and Hugo Clark joined us for the first couple of miles before heading home for some warmth, leaving the three of us to ride to Old Ma's for lunch.

Not a bad day - cold but dry with not much wind and the occasional bit of sunshine. We took a reasonably direct route each way but managed 80+ miles which seems plenty for this time of year.

Just me, Ian and Andy today.

It stayed dry but the wind got stronger and stronger as the day went on.

We made decent progress despite the gales with some very fast wind assisted stretches on the way back - must have been the result of me having two Eastern Revive curries over the weekend and a big plate of beans on toast at Audlem!

Simon did a sterling effort today, the whole day on the front, I was hanging on much of the day even given a hard time by Clark senior.
One of those days that makes you stronger....literally......
