Fourteen riders turned out to dodge the showers on the way to Eccleshall. The short group were heading out towards Goostery. The main group set out to Cheddelton where a brief stop was made to meet up with Andy and Jo who had a broken spoke to repair. We met up and carried on through Dilhorne and Blythe Bridge before reaching Stallington and Hilderstone. We rode through Sandon and on to Great Bridgeford before continuing on to Eccleshall. It was here that our original cafe choice was full due to Fathers Day so we headed back to Norbury Junction where we found plenty of seats outside but as were were queing, it started to rain again so we managed to find seats indoors.
We headed back via Eccleshall and Swynerton and Barleston and Rough Close. Here we said goodbye to Andy and Jo and carried on to Meir and Weston Coyney and Werrington. We rode through Longsdon and parted company with Ride Leader, Dave M and continued in to Leek after a enjoyable but tough ride. I do not have a computer on my wet/winter bike so am unable to record the mileage. I hope riders did not think I was being rude by leaving the cafe early but being sensitive to noise causes me issues at times and I need a break so bear with me, its tough being on the spectrum. Thanks to Dave M for leading the ride and to Carl for helping me with recording the route.
