A dozen set off from Cottingham in the cold rain heading hopefully towards better weather, passing early start John on his way back. With clearing skies spirits rose on this auspicious day, the puncture devil struck both Dave (thorn) and Mal (flint) . TJ’s was rammed full with customers and some of the group were unable to have two cups of coffee owing to kitchen overload. Still the log burners were glowing and provided welcome warmth to thaw out feet, hands and bums. Thanks Terry and WhatsApp for managing the ride logistics.
