Where’s Nettleton? Sunday Club Ride 16/09/18

September 16th, 2018

A good turnout at the Humber Bridge today to admire Pete Ks massive 40t chainring (electric bike purchase delaying option?) Once again only one group set off south for Kelsey into a stiff SW wind. Welcome Coffee stop at Howsham enjoyed by most of the group. According to our inset reporter, Dudley, the planned lunch stop at Kelsey was abandonded as the Cafe was full, onwards to Nettleton? Wind assisted Return was uneventful apart from a saddle falling off incident!
Thanks be to Dudley for his contribution. One early bath.

ps Beverley John is taking names for a Helmsley YH trip  on 10th October – interested? contact him ASAP

Sheila’s Interesting Ride out East Sunday 09/09/18

September 9th, 2018

Just one group set off from an overcast Cottingham pushed by a mainly tail to cross wind. Interesting place names on the way to Stoney Creek on the Humber bank included, Noddle Hill, Swine, Sunk Island, Bleak house and a surprise Humber tunnel outlet and all its infrastructure. Lunch, after 35 miles, was at the excellent Station pub at Patrington.

The return was via the Hornsea Sutton cycle way with some of us fading towards the end of the 60 plus miles.

thanks Sheila for leading and the ‘Coffee stop’ (without coffee) refreshments at the Creek. 1 puncture, 1 early Bath, 1 solo return


In ansewer to a question ‘no … this is not part of Hadrian’s wall.
