John and James were joined this morning by Rob, Sarah and Lyn to make the most of some unexpected early morning sunshine. The forecast was for heavy showers and high winds….
We followed the same route as last Sunday’s ride as a few were nursing hangovers and an easy flat ride was what the doctor had ordered. The ride was going nicely until we turned south at Aldborough, by which time the wind had picked up a bit and yes, we were headed into it for the next 15 miles all the way to Wetherby!
We did manage to keep a reasonable pace though until we got blasted by a shower coming into Wetherby, so we heaed for the shelter of The Shambles Cafe before heading back to Harrogate via Kirk Deighton, Spofforth and Follifoot, where James peeled off for roast at his parents. Once again a very nice ride albeit a slightly windy one!
