In 2013, The Burton Marsh cycle route to Nets Cafe at Denhall fisheries was newly open, offering the ladies yet another new cafe to add to our growing list. It was also an opportunity to encourage people out who may not have ridden before, as it is flat and mostly off road. It felt like an appropriate ride to repeat in 2014.
20 of us met at Kingsway Cafe; another nice thing (for me) is that we do not need as many leaders, and in theory everyone can ride at their own pace.
Or so I thought.

We watched a flock of swans take off and fly over the marshes, and a huge flock of
penned in sheep.
Nets cafe were ready as ever and served us well with tea cakes, scones and bacon butties; as we sat outside in the gradually improving weather. People drifted off home as suited them, until the final band of us headed back to Chester.
