    Evening all!
    Just spent the last hour catching up with the adventures of you all since Boozers!
    It seems that the rain and ice has either kept you all indoors, or on short rides... or in the pool, in the case of Leigh Fishit (the cat comment made me crack up!!!) Tales of tea and toast at the Philpotts sounds lovely! And reading about how you have all braved the elements to ride together makes me smile :-)
    I shan't bore you all with the tales of the horrendous weather up north! Suffice it to say:
    a) I could count the number of times I used my winter Campag jacket in the Midlands on one hand - it was rarely cold enough to justify wearing it. Here it's seeing the light of day at least twice a week!
    b) The log burner in our living room is an absolute lifesaver!
    Anyway, I digress! We've missed you all terribly and we're coming back to the Midlands this weekend as my nan turns 70! We'll be staying at Mick's from Friday 10th through til Monday 13th - and we're both up for a club ride!
    O's managed to get out a couple of times with the local bash, but between commuter mileage, the cold and adapting to the new job the only miles I am doing are to and from work -  a 24 mile commute in this weather approx 4 times a week is enough for me atm! But with this and tales of the cold and short Saracen adventures in mind O and I quite fancy a ride on Sunday to our favourite place - Pershore. 
    Currently, the forecast looks cold and dry for Sunday, but I appreciate this will probably change as Sunday draws closer. Anyway, I thought I'd mention it and see how everyone feels about it :-)
    Looking forward to hopefully seeing you - fingers crossed for some fairly decent weather!!!

    Hannah reacted to ChrisKENT in 'C'-RUN:- SUNDAY 29th January 2017.   
    Well it was like this:-
    Sean had woke feeling somewhat under the weather, no one else turned up so it was left to Leigh & I to carry the flag (slowly & not particularly far).
    It was damp & much colder than we had anticipated as we headed to our original destination & the forecast rain ☔️ started several hours earlier than anticipated.
    Some common sense came to the fore as I suggested we visit the nearer Whit Lenge garden-centre in the circumstances!
    Fortunately Leigh didn't take too much persuasion and even less as we reached Cutnall Green & I suggested Lord Morton's Tea Rooms to ✋ at.
    There we enjoyed excellent service (there was nobody else there initially) & were joined by 3 Halesowen members also bemoaning the weather which had continued to deteriorate!
    We took the shortest (I was going to say quickest but that would imply that we were going fast) route to Leigh's where more tea was taken on board.
    The offer of a lift home was most welcome & accepted after I'd dried out & warmed up!
    Many thanks to Leigh & Linda's company, conversation & support in a particularly "dark period".
    As we approached home via the dodgey end of Blackwell Road from Burcot we came across the bedraggled sodden Bromsrove run who to their credit were approximately 10 in number.
    I hope that our 'B' run ? had an incident-free  outing on what has been a grim day indeed!
     
    And yes TONEY we saw some ice along the way in a number of locations!

    Picked up a couple of Kev's at the Forest and headed for The Railway Carriage via the
    usual route Flying Horse lane Bidford etc.
    Caught the mature group a mile before Hillers lead by Barry Lucas & Pete Cooper.
    We put in a small loop after Bidford before arriving at the cafe.
     
    To our surprise Pete Cooper was already there having left the C's at Hillers to meet up with the Bs.
    Only problem needed a snooze to get over the effort.


    The rest of the gang, Note! Pete's back with us.


    A pair of Kev's taking refreshments.
    SPEEDY Kev still under shock at the price of beans on a cob as they .had run out of bread for toast.

    The cooks galley.

    Pete preparing his bike for the return leg.

    Being the last to leave found the Bs had already exited via the back door.
    I could just see the Kev's speeding off along the Greenway in the direction of Long Marston
    at top speed thinking the other were in front of them. Fortunately they waited for me to catch up
    at the end no Bs in sight.
    We finish of a great ride by returning after Bidford up and over the Lenches then back to Tardebigge.
