Clubruns - March

Postby simon » March 13th, 2016, 8:30 pm

Eight showed up today - Barry, Jonathon, Tony, Ian, Simon, Dave Williams, Mally and John Leonard. The club run list said Old Ma's but with so many trips there recently and a lovely spring day we decided to head for the hills.

Out via Gawsworth, Sutton and Flash took us to Longnor where we opted for an early lunch. Tony bought cakes for everyone to celebrate his birthday and we sat outside and enjoyed some very welcome warm sunshine.

There was mixed appetite for more hills in the afternoon and we split into a few smaller groups for the ride home. My trip took me along the Hope valley which was very pleasant and it was hard to believe that the previous week it had been snowing and icy. Lets hope March brings a few more days like this!

Sunday 20 March - Hulme End

A super group of eleven started today, Andy, Baz, Dave W and his mate Ian, John L, Mally, Ian, Jonathan, Paul, Simon, Tony.

John, Mally and Jonathan turned back at various points leaving eight at lunch. We had 32 at lunch and Paul had 52 despite taking the 'direct route'!! (NOT).....

Super day for riding under mainly sunny skies and dry roads. Great route via Wildboarclough, Royal Cottage, Butterton and onto the cafe at Hulme End. Paul strolled in after 30mins tired and weary.

After lunch Baz and Paul took the 'flat' direct route via Hollinsclough :o , the rest opted for Monyash, Millers Dale and Dove Holes.

Great day.

Sunday 27 March 2016 - Old Ma's

Just father and myself at Handforth this morning, we opted for the new cafe at Guilden Sutton but when we arrived it was closed for Easter so on into the block headwind to Old Ma's where we had 49. Miles on the clock.

Dry all morning but we caught a sharp shower on the return with a super tailwind we were home in no time.

86 miles and avg 16.8 wasn't bad for a windy day, father going very well at the moment too.
