Christmas Ride – 29th December 2010

The weather conditions looked like they had thawed enough as a few hardy souls gathered to try and blow away a few of the Christmas excesses on this morning.  We decided to keep the ride nice and gentle and head out towards Boroughbridge, before dropping down to Wetherby.

However, just outside  Knaresborough at Lingerfield, Luke and Richard hit some black ice and came tumbling down to tarmac with a solid bump.  Thankfully there were no injuries, however the collective decision was taken to head to Knaresborough for an early coffee, before then heading for home.  We only ended up doing just over 13 miles, however everyone’s safety was more important that a few extra miles.
