So, 10 of us met and I managed to drag the early birds out of the cafe (this could be harder as the winter progresses!) and we set off up Mannings lane to the country lanes. There were some large sticks and 'tree debris' scattered around the lanes, and a tree was down in Picton Gorse Lane (but the road was clear). We headed to the zoo, where we had to walk on the pavement as the road was closed one way (we waved at Ali's house as we went past). Then we had a lovely downhill to the canal, where I snapped a few pics!

A very pleasant and surprisingly warm 14 miles! Back to the cafe for 12. Perfect timing!
