“Last of the Summer Time” Report

As usual, we assembled outside the Whitworth Art Gallery ready for a 2pm departure…

We headed through Whitworth Park and along some quiet back roads into Platt Fields…

Eagle-eyed viewers might notice some off-road riding in the picture above. That’s Mr Adam exerting himself in the style of Mr Cavendish, to get ahead for the next shot…

Top speedy-cycling and rock-steady photo capturing skills Sir!

More of Mr Adam’s excellent snaps can be found here.

Despite the cooler day and cloudier skies we enjoyed the company of twice as many riders as our first tweed ride – thanks to everyone who attended:

From here we pedalled gently towards central Manchester, via a few hostelries of course.

Again we gained a rider en-route – a young chap who promptly nipped home to retrieve an old bike from his shed upon which he joined us for a drink and some bike chat.

A couple of people have requested another ride before February/March, so how about a winter warmer ride on Friday 30th December, departing from The Friendship Inn (Fallowfield, M14 6XS) at 1pm, returning there around 5.30pm ?

I’ve planned a circular route that includes 6 pub stops – click on the thumbnail for more detail. Please get in touch if you want to suggest other routes or dates, or to confirm your attendance. See you on the next ride…
