A large group of sixteen riders turned out to ride to Barton Marina. It was nice to Andy Bain back out with the club after a break and we had a new Rider Andy J join us, a man who picks his cycling routes by placing a bike wheel above a map with a pointer fitted now beat that GPS!. We set out along Ashbourne road and up to Bottom House and along Ipstones Edge before reaching Cauldon Lowe. Here myself and the two Andys decided to turn off for Longnor as we felt we would not keep up with the main group so they carried on in to Ellastone and Roston, Doveridge and Sudbury and Needwood before reaching Barton Marina for a cafe stop. They met up with Alison H who joined them for the return leg through Dunstall, Woodlane and Hoar Cross, Abbots Bromley, Bramshall, Tean, Kingsley Moor, Leek. Thanks to Rich C for leading a 75 mile ride and for Andy B for leading a 37 mile ride.
