6 tandems started from Newport in glorious sunshine, the temperature was a little chilly to start though some braver souls did opt for shorts. They were justified as it soon warmed up and after a few hills everyone started removing layers. Robert and Wendy joined us en-route to make 7 tandems rolling into Hungersheath tearoom for a well deserved lunch. We were very well looked after making it hard to get started again, but we were soon trundling up a few more hills on our way back to Newport (we still can't work out how it seemed to be uphill going there and uphill going back). A challenging but very enjoyable ride in great weather and even better company.
7 Tandems enjoyed the April ride on a sunny day though we also had quite a cold breeze. 22 miles from Whitchurch to the lunch stop at the Dusty Miller in Wrenbury left everyone ready for lunch and we were well looked after by the staff at this lovely canal side pub. The 7 miles back to Whitchurch was probably not enough to ride off the calories consumed at lunch time though a few small climbs helped.
