New cafe stop, new riders to feed

It was a very good day for a ride for those new to road cycling with a group, and so we had four who turned up today to see what we are about. Three ladies, Lynn (who had been out with us once before), Nikki, and Debbie, and a returning ex-WVCC member in the form of Martin (who is also the brother of the Club Secretary, and last rode with the club in the 80’s).

A nice steady ride out through the usual lanes was kept at an easy pace for those trying to fund the right legs, and the right gears.

Derek had suggested that Walk Mill was a good destination, and he was right. A cracking little stop that we pass regularly on our way out through Waverton, but is usually too near for one of our rides. Not today though. We were treated to great speedy service, good food and cake, baked with flour from the working mill, and a warm day to eat outside.

It's a real mill, really working, making real flour, to put in real cakes, and real bread!

Not a bad place to be for a Sunday chow-down before the return ride.

We put in a nice steady return loop along Huxley Lane, then back through Tarporley and past Oulton Park, before introducing legs to Whitegate(!), where me an Al jumped off the leash to push to a sprint, where I sneakily jumped Al to the Hartford sign (video evidence can be produced if required…).

We re-grouped and the ride was pretty much done, with a good 35+ miles in most new rider legs, and a good day out on the bike.

I recommend the cafe (check it out on the Cafe Map), and recommend a WVCC ride for beginners! Keep watching the calendar for more.

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
