Meerbrook (Tittesworth Resevoir)

Not the cafe I’d planned to go to but the nearest one which could handle the numbers!
Once again a fantastic turnout of 28 riders at the Legion which allowed us to split into two decent sized groups. One group for the long hilly ride and one for a shorter flatter route, this arrangement works well when we have these sort of numbers and we try to ride out together for the first 15 to 20 miles to allow a bit of socialising amongst the ranks before we go our separate ways.
Alan Silver took the short route and I think he planned to go to Congleton Garden Centre (let me know Alan) via a roundabout route.
The long group followed me (you should know better by now!) as we addressed a cocktail of hills including Mow Cop and Biddulph Moor on the way to Meerbrook. As the planned cafe only had seating for 12 and there were 15 of us a rapid recalculation of the route was needed to avoid disappointment. On exiting Meerbrook cafe another recalculation was necessary as the rain had set in and I detected a reluctance to venture further into the Staffordshire hills, so we headed straight for home. Only one thing stood in our way, GUN HILL! Everyone made it without too much trouble then we only had another hill before we got down onto the flat lands of Cheshire for the breeze home to Northwich.

Well done everyone especially those without triple chainrings!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Club runs are back in the calendar for our members and new riders who are looking to join.
