Thursday September 12th
A super long ride was organised and lead by Nigel. Beautiful scenery, quite a few climbs. Cake stop at 25 miles at the Blackbird Café in Chapel Row - just past the beautiful Douai Benedictine Abbey. Friendly staff, excellent coffee. Pushing on another 13 miles to East Ilsely and lunch in the sunshine at the ex-racing stables of Crown and Horn. Bob McLeod, you are an inspiration to us all, 81 years old and didn't even break a sweat! 70 miles and 3100' of climb. A fab day out.
