71st Anniversary Club Run to High Legh

 

We celebrated the club’s first club run to Lymm, held on Sunday 15 Aug 1948, with three groups riding to nearby High Legh Village Hall. Two groups started from the site of Albert Brough's Cycle Shop, which is where the club run rode out from in 1948.

Thank you to everyone that supported the rides (29 of us out in uncertain, but actually benign, weather) and to Shirley and Keith and their gang of hard workers at the Village Hall who gave up their Sunday to raise £700 for Riding For The Disabled. Special thanks to Shirley for making our vegan carrot and coconut 71st birthday cake.

Planning is already underway for our 72nd Anniversary Club Run: most likely 16 August 2020. Make a diary note now.
