Paul Mellors and Sue Revill rode this picturesque audax sunday 29th April. Starting from Shenstone and into a cold headwind for 40 miles, finally with the wind behind for last 12 miles or so. Quiet lanes and pretty villages with couple of good cafe stops, great route. Over 300 were out riding the 4 distances on offer - 200, 160, 100 and 54 km. Great atomosphere back at club house with fresh cooked pizza, pasta, home baked cakes etc etc. one for the diary next year
Only 8 riders today with heavy frost and ice about. We all set off together and kept away from the small roads to stay safe. At least the sun was out! This made it a shorter ride than usual to Farnsfield where the café was very busy. This made the stop a little longer but we weren't keen to leave the warmth anyway. At least we managed to get a ride in and stay safe.
