The Winter Washout!

A brief report on the winter washout ride from December…

It was a very wet day but several hardy souls braved the weather and pedaled out into the mist.  A handful of riders assembled at the start point – some made this their only pub of the day and then returned home, the more adventurous headed down the Fallowfield Loop to meet 3 of us in Chorlton. After a drink or two we gave up waiting for a break in the weather and headed out again anyway, a short ride to the next pub by a rather full River Mersey. From there we thought better of venturing further afield so headed back to Chorlton for warm food and some more drinks.

After the ride we learned that some riders had visited one of the later pub stops, and that the lanes from Northenden to Didsbury were flooded so may have curtailed our trip anyway! Let’s hope the heavens offer more clement conditions for our next outing…
