Not all riding has to be hard. Not all riding has to be a long way. 20 miles with friends around frosty winter lanes and a slap-up lunch before a train ride home was a lovely way to spend the day!
With Christmas on the horizon it was really nice to meet up with fellow VC167 riders for a party in Newton Aycliffe. Thanks to Penny for organising this shin-dig. A quick train journey to Darlington where I met up with Dean, then a ride out to Piercebridge to pick up Roy and Mike. Those club riders who live locally had enjoyed some social riding around the lanes, and we were taking it easy to get to the Oak Leaf Centre for 1pm.
Dean won the Club Trophy for the VC167 rider with the most Audax Points this season, and Gordon won “Clubman of the Year”. Happy Christmas!
