Sunday 16th October

On a pleasant Autumn day 15 riders set off  making the route up as we went along.

The outward route was via Heighington, back lanes to Darlington and South Park where John punctured.  Whilst the glue was drying Eddie invited the remaining 8 riders back to Sedgefield for lunch.  On the way, Gary did his naked man in the woods impression which was closely followed by a minor pile up which resulted in a buckled wheel and broken spoke for Keith.  Thankfully the broken spoke was found safely stuck in Keith’s leg!

Road side repairs got us to Eddie’s house for loads of food and coffee – thanks Eddie!  Further bike repairs enabled us to continue home. 

A return journey from Sedgefield via Newton Aycliffe and Eldon.  A distance covered today of between 50 and 60 miles.

A reminder for all club members that the AGM takes place at the Pollards on the Wednesday, 26th October.
