Club Run Sunday 12/1/20 🐝🐝🐝

Recommended Posts

John has asked me to post the rides for the next two Sunday's as he isn't out giving  the rest of us a chance to get some extra points on him 😝

The venue will be The Vale Golf Club near  Bishampton apparently it has been done out and the you don't have to go into the golf house to get to the cafe.

I will be leaving TB at 10 am (prompt ) and will be doing a steady ride to meet Mr Philpott at the junction of Flying Horse Lane at the Saltway at approx 10.20 am. Alan and I will be doing a steady loop round toThe Vale so if there are fast boys out wanting to go faster we will see you there that way we can all go at the pace that suits us .

So hopefully will see some of you in the morning . 🚴

On opening the curtains this morning it was dry and sunny, so off to the shed to get my bike out and to set off . As soon as I stepped out of the house it started to drizzle, no problem I thought, it's not heavy . Luckily I had put my waterproof on as within a mile of setting off the heavens opened with very heavy rain I pressed on questioning my sanity . On getting to TB I resembled a drowned rat and surprisingly no one else was there but it had stopped raining.

Set off to meet the Philpotts and Barry was there too. They were bone dry no rain their way, amazing. We pressed on, did a loop round to The Vale Golf Club only to find the cafe had closed 5 minutes prior to our arrival . Back up the drive we saw Ivor at the Raindeer Cafe which we'd missed on the way in but that was closed too !!!!

Bishampton was shut too with the front windows boarded over but we found a lovely new cafe called Philpott Towers excellent service you might even recognise the girls serving.

They even provided dry socks and slippers for my wet feet and plastic bags to put over dry socks for the way home. Highly recommend this place they serve baileys too . A lovely stop got warm excellent food and service. The boys did allot of talk about electric bikes as Alan's was in the hall. A few photos below.

Highly recommended. Thanks Chris and Alan for providing an excellent cafe stop at short notice and an informative discussion on electric bike technology and tyre's.

Also to Moira for her perseverance,  leading in adverse conditions  as well as assisting Chris in the Kitchen and photography
