September ride

Due to road closures in Stafford on 15th September the ride will now start from Market Drayton.  Full details in the whats on section.

For January, we are planning to once again start the ride from our house.  We will ride a non-stop 22m circuit and stop back at our house for soup, coffee and cake.   This allows us to easily cancel the ride in case of bad weather, which is much more likely in January.  Though of course the offer of soup, coffee and cake still applies even if we don't get to ride.  (We will have vegetarian and gluten free options available but if you have any other dietary requirements or allergies then please us know)

Well we all had a great Christmas lunch on Sunday at the Old Rectory in Wem. It was nice to see everyone in normal clothes rather than lycra and I must say you all scrubbed up very nicely! Looking at the rain pouring down outside it was agreed that not riding to the lunch was a good decision. With all the bad weather, it has been a difficult time to find days to ride recently but we managed to go the whole year without cancelling a single monthly tandem club ride so we can't complain too much.
The November ride was the best attended yet. 10 tandems and a solo set out from Newport and cycled 28 miles including a lunch stop at the Tickled Trout tea room, Loynton Fisheries. The weather was cold and grey but dry except for a short shower whilst we were nice and warm eating our lunch. We were very well looked after by the staff at the tea room who coped admirably with serving 21 hungry cyclists. The roads were a bit wet and muddy but there were no serious floods to impede our way which was a bonus given the amount of rain there has been recently. The timing of the ride could not have been better as it started raining just as we were all ready to depart the car park.
