I was away for the June ride, so passed the ropes to the leaders.
As the weekend approached, facebook comments echoed with concerns for the weather forecast, with some leaders dropping out the night before and on the morning.
However - Linda reports "Despite the wind and the rain a hardy group of cyclists assembled at Kingsway cafe this morning. We split into 2 groups, the further faster led by Alex and a regular group led by myself. Given the weather our group did a 20 miler, stopping at Old Ma’s cafe near Tattenhall. Once we were cycling and warmed up a bit the wind dropped and the rain was very light. It was actually quite refreshing.
At the cafe we were informed by Mary that it was World Knit in Public day (who knew there was such a thing?) and then proceeded to get her knitting out.
A bit more of a head wind on the way back but good to get out. Thanks to Mary and then Rick and Clare for backmarking."
Alex led the faster group to the new cafe at Coddington, called Manor Wood (I have not been there yet).
Apparently, it was also 'World Gin Day'!
