Sunday 1st November

Medium Plus Ride Brisk

Route 201 today – 41 miles. A Careless Whisper suggested it was November but the weather wasn’t as bad as Last Christmas. The only riders present this morning were some Young Guns (go for it) who braved the rain – Mark, Mark, Tim No.1 & Tall Tim. That rain stopped soon enough and all seemed well in sheltered conditions but then Wham! a wind straight from Club Tropicana would arrive. On to G&T’s – the drinks are(n’t) free but there was fun and sunshine, enough for everyone – all that’s missing is the sea. And fabulous blue skies and sleepy sunshine – so much so that it was almost necessary to say Wake Me Up Before You Go Go. 12 or so miles back to Harrogate. They say guilty feet have got no rhythm. Perhaps but not today.
