Around a dozen out on today's ride. I decided on Rufford with the wind supposedly a North Westerley. Out along the river, then Southwell, Hockerton, Caunton and back towards Eakring. On this stretch we saw a unicyclist riding in the opposite direction. Out to Wellow then Rufford, where we discovered there was a 1940's themed weekend. £10 entry for cars but we got in free. The café was very busy and we sat outside, being serenaded by the White Cliffs of Dover and other 40's hits. Back through Bilsthorpe, Hexgreave and up Greaves Lane then back to Lowdham. I ended up with 54 miles at 15.1 average.

A cold day, but not as cold as yesterday. Still a little ice around so kept off the lanes at first. Some went to Newark while ten of us had an easy ride to Farnsfield including Jon Kettell up from Somerset on a visit. A very social gathering at the Woodberry Café for a longer stop than usual. Clockwise from left Mark Haywood, Richard Buckwell, Kevin Humphreys, Ed Ward, Jon Kettell, Phil Hooks, Dave Gretton, Michael Falter, James Pam and Dave Waring.
