To Prees and back

Sorry about the dark photos – young Titch is studying photography at Mid Cheshire so clearly we need to get him to take them in future! The reason the top one is so bad is because the sun was so bright and was directly behind us – so it doesn’t give any idea as to just what a beautiful sunny day it was. We had a great ride today. Graham led us to Prees via Nantwich and Whitchurch, then back on a great route which took us via Malpas (where the photos were taken), the Peckforton Hills and then (to avoid the closed bridge at the Shady Oak) via Bunbury. It was icy on some patches but we took the descents carefully and there were no mishaps. We had a companiable group out today and our front riders set a sensible pace so we kept together most of the time. Our group included youngsters James (who did a big share of riding on the front for us) Titch (who is doing really well) and me (!), and then for the”grown ups” we had Graham, Jules, John Conboy, Alan K, Howie, Ady and Carol (thanks for goading me on up the hills Carol!) Paul joined us on the way out but dropped out with knee problems – Paul, we hope you’re OK…
I had 69 miles on the clock at the end of the day, and felt that I’d worked hard.

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....
