The ride today took us right at East Bridgford, Cropwell Bishop, Colston Bassett, Harby, Bottesford and Little Jacks for tea, toast and marmalade then back via Orsten and Eastbridgford.
There was an icy wind present and about 5 miles from the cafe stop the pace stepped up when Ed retired from leading at the front causing a few to drop back. From the cafe it was a leisurely pace of 13 to 15 MPH with me and Ed at the front, well that was until the long run down to Car Colston where a group took off so I followed them.
So finished the ride much by myself until the fast ride group overtook me at Gunthorpe, but was I going to let them; no. So I tagged on the back of them at 18mph until half way along the cycle track where my little legs could not power me enough to keep up with them. Still a good ride clocking up 48.35 miles by the time I got home.
