Casual Ride -January 2009

 Distance clocked was about 62km around the quiet lanes of Warwickshire, the morning was sunny but crisp with a strong SW-ish wind, the run back after lunch was decidedly colder but had the benefit of a tailwind for most of it.

The 19 riders were all members of various cycling newsgroups or other pals - 1 "just popped over to see us" and peeled off after about 3 miles; 1 suffered a broken seatpost bolt and retired (with his pal); 1 headed for home for a previous engagement just prior to lunch; 2 lingered at the pub and trickled back to the start later; 1 extra rider (unknown) tagged along from the lunch stop - that left 14 finishers.

Cafe stop despite being pre-booked, and numbers confirmed as we set off was a shambles - the promised tables had not be reserved (the 3 riders that went to the pub next door made a wise choice)

The riders seemed to enjoy the day ... perhaps we'll do it again?
