Thanks to 33 riders who ignored the forecast and rode on Rik Thompson’s excellent course around Tadcaster. It was the coldest, wettest day this year and the only redeeming feature was the absence of wind. Despite this everyone seemed to enjoy their rides when they had thawed out in the very welcoming Coach & Horses. It has been said that there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes. After today, I’m not going to use that expression again as no kit was good enough to keep us dray or our feet warm. As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed my ride but decided at Bramham that I wouldn’t be staying out for the full 2 hours so didn’t venture south of the A64. My route was 7 27 16 26 11 1 8 20 22 13 18 28 17 21 6 9 and I’ll ask the winners to post theirs. Here are the map and results
The only thing I didn’t enjoy about the day was the 4 hour drive trying to get home through the snow to Richmond. I ended up leaving the car at Skeeby and walking the last 2 miles. Hope it’s still there in the morning and everyone else got home safely.
Hope to see you at the next event at Stillington in January.
Merry Christmas from Rik and me at the Coach & Horses
