Despite the earlier start time of 9.30am and many of the regulars being away or otherwise engaged over the bank holiday weekend, nine of us had a bright sunny morning around the trails of Primrose Wood. Good to see John from Sandiway out for the first time – I don’t think we scared him off yet! The Easter bunnies had been out and laid a few eggs around the route. James and Andrew Risk are now so keen that they even completed this 3 hour off road ride ahead of the Ron Sant memorial 43 mile road ride on Sunday.
We tried out a few newly discovered trails on the way across to Primrose Wood while Steve M fixed a puncture. Later on, Rob’s mate Steve (I think that’s his name) managed to destroy his rear hanger so Rob did his speciality singlespeed conversion – if it’s good enough for Cader Idris!
Bacon and egg batch back at the cafe before heading back along the Whitegate Way with John and Kev C. A perfect warm up for the Ron Sant ride the following day – thanks to Paul Lawson for organising that and devising such a quite route, although the mountain bike would have been handy in places where the mud on the roads was as thick as it had been in Delamere.
