Undeterred, 10 ladies gathered at the allotted time for the obligatory photo shoot by Terry from the cafe. (he loves being part of the ladies - if we only allow him in for 5 minutes!).
Near to Mollington there is a part of route 56 that has about 7 gates along its length. So, I explained all about 'Gate Etiquette' (see new addition to the bottom of the 'rider communication' page). This was taken on board marvellously, and allowed swift passage through to the main road by Dunkirk.
We were met at to Eureka by Sonia from Two Mills / Bicycle Belles. Much chatting and quaffing (of tea!) as usual, followed by a spring filled return via Woodbank and Lodge Lane to pick up the Greenway at Sealand. By now the sun was definitely out, and the day was warming up and becoming decidedly spring like, helped significantly by the tail wind I had been searching for all the way home from work yesterday!
