Next Ride 19th January - meeting point pavillion at normal time of 8:30am.
12th January: With the weather very windy the attendance was low with only 7 riders across both groups, we quickly decided to go out as one group and headed out against the wind to Bolsover. It was a slow pace against the wind plus some riders had mechanical issues with their bikes we delayed us reaching the cafe. As usual the cafe was perfect and we all enjoyed the shelter from the wind. We were blown most of the way home and Martyn and Andy did an excellent job leading at the front. Rider of the week was given to Martyn.
5th January: For the first ride of 2019 eighteen riders were at the starting point - 5 riders for Pete's ride to Rother Valley and 13 riders for the ride to Whisby. Andy added a few detours for the way out taking a right at Eaton and riding up the hill to Askham, we then took the normal route for the remainder of the ride to the nature reserve. The cafe stop was very good service and excellent value. Bob suggested that we go via Doddington and then take the track route back, we all agreed to this route change. Unfortunately Allistair and Martyn both got punctures on route and therefore this delayed the ride a couple of times. We still averaged 17mph for the 70 miles ride and the weather was quite pleasant for January. Rider of the week was given to Andy Pedley who rode well throughout the whole 70 miles.
