Memorial Rides Sunday 10th September 2017.
This Sunday's rides' traditionally mark the day we remember past members, usually with a special event or challenge. This year we are inviting our various ride groups to meet for, after ride, coffee, tea and cakes.
The picture below is of a memorial seat in the village of Lund, which was a favourite stop for Ida Pratt.
A good turnout for a pleasant warm and dry ride, out via Lund, for coffee, then onto Allerthorpe for lunch. We were waved off by an injured Mel and a not injured Rachel. Derny J suffered 2 snakebites during a furious gritty descent. Return by Newbald. Don't be fooled by the number of Starva trophies Long Tom was allocated, as his GPS is new and represents many first attempts!
Alan A recovering from knee surgery and Ray R from a collarbone/chest injury after a fall on his bike, speedy recovery to both.
A warm sunny day for John's ride to Dalby Forest starting from Sledmere village at 9:30. Coffee stop at the golf courses at Snainton with an option for 'foot golf ?' and then on over the mountains to the back entrance of a packed Dalby forest. The lavender farm at Terrington provided tea and ice-cream before the pull over the wolds back to Sledmere and tea on the village green courtesy of Tom.
A pleasant ride to a new home conservatory cafe near Melbourne which also provided timely shelter from a heavy rain shower. Derny Jim provided an element of motor pacing and uphill assistance (asked for or not) on his super efficient new e-bike. Welcome to Jeff.
