Due to a poor weather forecast the decision has been made to cancel the ride out from Market Drayton on Sunday 12th August.

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.

We had a good turnout for the March ride from Newport to Eccleshall with 8 tandems starting out in reasonable weather. It was a little grey and a bit breezy but much better than the torrential rain of the day before! We especially enjoyed the traffic free section on the old railway track between Newport and Stafford. We were met at lunch by Steve and we all appreciated being indoors during the tremendous hail storm.

For May's ride we are planning to ride a round trip of 33 miles from Newport to the Hungersheath Farm shop and Tea Room near Ashley (Full details below).  There will be a few more hills than we have seen recently but nothing to worry about.  We don't need to pre-order our meals but please note they mostly serve a Sunday Roast during lunch time, though cake etc is always available.
As usual, if the weather is not fit to ride, we will still meet up at the café for lunch and a catch up.
Please let us know if you intend to join the ride as we need to ensure there is space for you at lunch and that we don't leave without you.
