2019 Cycling

Marchclick for this month's league table

Gate Inn, Osbaston

It was wet and windy for the twelve embers who cycled today. The weather was the same. So after meeting at Kirby Muxloe and donning our waterproofs for the Burroughs, we made a quick circuit of Thornton Reservoir then sought refuge in the café at Thornton Nurseries.

We then pushed on into the teeth of the wind all the way to the Gate Inn at Osbaston where we took our time over lunch in the hope of better weather.

Our return journey was aided and abetted by a following wind and just a threat of rain. However we still thought it prudent to take on more coffee and cake at Tropical Birdland before we broke up to take our separate ways home.

The Bell, Gumley

Despite portents of doom, nine Embers faced the gales too cycle from Houghton on the Hill. We quickly made our way to Wistow Café Bistro for our banana break.

We then climbed the really steep hill by Saddington Reservoir to reach The Bell in Gumley.

We then returned for pudding (coffee and cake) at The Well where they now know us all too well. Then ever onwards via Burton Overy and Kings Norton into the headwind and up hills just for the sport of it.
