Club Run – May 5th 2019

Sixteen riders set out for Bunbury after dealing with a lose valve on Steve W bike. Thanks to the stall holder for the loan of the mole grips. We set out along Rudyard and Biddulph Moor and in to Kidsgrove and in to Alsager where Rich C had issues with his rear mech so we had a break to deal with that and enjoyed the sight of a electric motor bike, very strange to hear no noise! We were soon on the move and heading in to Nantwich and Barthomly where Gavin suffered a puncture so I helped with that and we carried on to Bunley where we were soon enjoying large helpings of beans on toast and eggs and even chips. But even this was not enough carbs for some riders and cans of pepsi and cakes were ordered
We headed back via Astbury, Hightown, Newtown and Rudyard before arriving back in Leek at 3.40PM after a long, 78 miles. Thanks to Jamie J and “Storm Gareth” for leading the ride via Garmin. I am sorry for not being more acurate with the route but I do not know Cheshire at all and looking at the map was no help. Can I take this Rapha hair shirt off now?
