New Year's Day Easy Ride to Lymm
A grey start to New Year's Day turned into sunshine for the 18 of us on today's easy ride to Lymm.
John J led us until Phil B punctured. We decided to equip him with a small team of domestiques (John J, Bennet and Jim), and Simon G took over leading the rest of us into the headwind. Phil and his domestiques eventually caught us before Lymm. Our second 'mechanical was Yvonne' s mud guard which snapped just before the cafe. It was a very snug fit so after some expert assessment it was left in situ. Yvonne and Phil L had to head back early, so Costas only had to cope with 16 of us. The ride back was easier with a tail to cross wind and no mechanicals, and we were back in Wilmslow just after 2pm. Other riders out today were Philip Br(great to have him out again after an enforced break due to shingles), Pat, Gwen, Kirsten, Alison F, Adele, John E, Simon R, Ian, Mark H and myself. Next Sunday's easy ride will be from Broken Cross and Siddington Cross Roads, we will split into two groups if we have a lot out.
