Skidby to Mappleton ride report – 20th June 21.

Gpx route on the website, members area.
Sunday 20th June – 7 of us met up at Skidby, Gill F, Linda R, Sheila M, Dave W, Dave of Bev, Dave of Cott, Dick M and we later met up with Lis B, and Martin. Lis and Dave W had briefly ridden together but got separated. Dave W lost the rest of us almost at the start! However we had a meeting planned at Heron Lakes and found Martin and Lis just near Routh so a convivial Coffee was had along with a “very good sausage sandwich”.
Some of the party hadn’t been to Heron Lakes’s Millers Cafe before, and were pleasantly impressed with the place. We had found our way through the new housing north of Kingswood and ridden straight up through Meaux. Dick. Gill and Linda returned from there, the rest of us rode up through Brandesburton then towards Warley Cross, through Bewholme and  Hornsea to Mappleton for a lunch stop at the old Post Office (or overlooking the sea, depending on preference).
Return was meant to be straightforward but got tricky around Great Hatfield where the group split, and the faster three set off ahead via Goxhill and Sigglesthorne before Long Riston, followed at a slightly slower pace by the rest of us.
All got back and no recriminations!!
A very pleasant day out on the bike.
