|Seven meet outside Chester Town Hall|
Stuart Cracking ride for Richards first attempt at leading despite a couple of punctures ( me again, really need to get some new rim tape ) and diversions because of a muddy lane and a major road accident. After an excellent lunch at Loggerheads we ended up back at Kinnerton Hall for afternoon coffee as after the diversions the cafe in Hope was shut. Thanks Richard.
Ray It was a great ride, just the right amount of hilly stuff for me. Thanks go to Richard for his efforts. We even stopped to see a world famous musician on the way back, but I'll leave the leader to explain....
Richard reports - Seven started from the Town Hall and went along the river and over Saltney bridge for morning coffee at Hawarden Farm Shop. Two left here and we carried on up through Hawarden, Drury and towards Soughton. Stu had two punctures which lead to repair stops in Tinkersdale and Drury. Due to recent rain the proposed route had to be amended along the main roads to the lunch stop at We Three Loggerheads. The afternoon run dropping back down towards Chester was also amended due to road closures which meant the coffee stop at Jemoleys was altered to Hope which turned out to be shut so an impromptu stop was made at chez Cannons! An eventful first lead for me, but a great day.
