Second January ride

This year, we have added some rides to the Chester CTC itinerary, mostly a second ride per month during the winter months,to bring it equal to the 'summer' months rides.  Today, third Sunday in January was the first of these 'extra' rides; and what a beautiful day it was!  Despite continued deluges in previous days and weeks - widespread flooding for much of the country and flood warnings still in place - the morning dawned with broken cloud and a watery sunrise.

13 met at the pond, and set off following John to Rose Farm at Utkinton.

Crossing the Gowy



Nearly there!

Getting ready to leave - just look at that sky now!






John led a faithful 6 to The Star at Acton,near Nantwich.




A few of us headed back after coffee, giving a morning total of 17 miles back to the pond.
