I managed to get to the start at Warden Hill Trading Post on the A37, a distance of 20 miles from my house, without driving on wet roads and here I joined up with about nine other riders. But there were ominous black clouds in the direction of Mangerton Mill (our destination), so I think we all donned our over-trousers and set off….
Rod and Carol Hann, the run organisers, took us on a very picturesque route via Wyford Eagle and Spyway, but we rode through some really horrible weather. However, we all made it to Mangerton Mill, where we all enjoyed a cream tea indoors while it continued to rain outside. And it was still raining when we left to head back to Warden Hill. Many thanks to Rod & Carol for organising such a good route. By the time I got home, I’d covered 75 miles, mainly in the wet 🙁 .
Yes, the weather on Wednesday could have been better (much better actually 🙂 ), but I for one still enjoyed it and wanted to re-do the route in better weather. So yesterday, after my riding gear had dried out, Ken Druce and I headed off to Mangerton Mill again and I had my second cream tea of the week.
