Mark S reports on tonight's ride:

What a quick one tonight for 22 miles!

With a regular ride leaders absent tonight it went to Mark S to suggest a route. Considering the amount of rain we have had he thought Plessey Woods via Cramlington would be nice and dry - not!

Ian B decided to bailout early due to a chest infection and Colin R thankfully rode him home. Thankyou Colin.

A few had some slippy slidy moments in Plessey Woods over those wet off camber routes especially Ray who went completely AOT at one point but we all made it out.

Bait stop was at 8:15 at the seat at the woods entry and we were out by 9:20 and back to Seghill by 9:30! (Alun was at the front)

I cant remember the last time we were all back by 10pm but a very good ride with lots of banter and not a drop of rain, contrary to what the MET office forecast, on this lovely warm night.

Next Sunday Ride (plus other odd days) - See our Facebook page.

Next Night Ride: Thursday as usual.

Thursday nighters are 10-25 milers, 7:00pm start at ASDA East car park, Benton, 3-3.5 hours and generally OK for fit new riders but you need decent lights you can see with, NOT CANDLES. You MUST wear a cycle helmet.

Sundays are generally much longer, 8:00am to 10:00am starts from ride venue ending around teatime, and much harder rides.

Other ad-hoc rides are always being organised, see our Facebook page. Gloves, waterproof coat, snack and drink recommended. Carry basic tools.

The Best Bike in the World arrives at ASDA!

Well, not actually in the store, but outside in the car park on Thursday night, and it was John Rivers who turned up with it, lucky s**! And as if to prove it's pedigree it resisted all of Matt Holmes' attempts to wreck it on a sharp-edged, very high kerb!
