After a week of looking at the weather forecast and seeing grey clouds and not very warm temperatures, 5 tandems were very pleased to set off from Audlem with blue skies and the prospect of some warm sunshine. We made good progress through the Shropshire and Cheshire countryside passing through Aston and Ightfield before arriving at our lunch stop, The Olde Jack at Calverhall, a little early but this enabled us to enjoy a drink in the sunshine before our meal. Replenished, we set off again through Moreton Say and Longford before heading back to Audlem. After loading the tandems back on/in the cars we all then went to the local ice cream shop for a well deserved treat. A good ride with great company with no major incidents along the way, though Ian and Carolyn gained all our respect by doing the whole route with just 3 gears due to a mechanical problem at the start of the ride.
