Today marked a return to our 2020 Programme of Events with our Northern Run. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we limited the numbers to a maximum of 30 riders and all participants had to pre-register, but apart from that, it felt like business as usual.
A great selection of bikes turned up at The Virginia Ash ranging from glorious Ariels to lowly Velocettes. The pub opened specially for us at 9:30am and it was good to see many of us ordering breakfast, coffees and teas; we need to make it worth their while and I think we did that today.
The first part of the run to the Windwhistle Pub at Cricket St Thomas was in glorious sunshine, but after that it became overcast and by the time people left Hamish’s Farm Shop & Café to head home, many of us got caught in the odd downpour.
But another very enjoyable run and thanks are due to Bernard for organising it. Look out for the next Sunday’s run : Last of the Summer Wine Run. A few places are still available but you must pre-book.
