Mince Pie Ride 2017

Icing conditions and the threat of rain did not prevent 20 hardy cyclists setting out on their annual ‘pudding’ run on Sunday, 17th December. Many of the riders had accessorised their bikes and donned fancy dress in a bid to be the best dressed Christmas rider of the year. A number of Santas, Pingu, the Grinch and even a bike customised as Rudolph left the Market Place for the round trip including a breakfast stop at The Raddle Inn, Hollington. The expected rainfall did not dampen spirits. Two riders stood out as would be winners: Santa with his collection of presents attached and the Grinch riding Rudolph. As just reward for his construction work, the £20 voucher went to Dave Magnier as the Grinch. Happily, Everyone made it home, safely, in spite of the inclement weather.
