The off-topic area. All the drivel you'd normal spout in the pub goes here.

Annual bike ride Sunday August 28th.

Postby chrisity » Sun Jul 31, 2016 5:57 pm

Annual bike ride Sunday August 28th.

Meeting at 1.00pm at The Navigation, Breaston, to leave by 1.30pm, then on to the Harrington at Thulston, The White Hart at Aston-on-Trent, the Coopers Arms at Weston-on-Trent, then down the canal to Shardlow for the Navigation and/or the Malt Shovel. From there to Cavendish Bridge and the Old Crown, before going to Sawley and the Nags Head or The Harrington Arms Beer Festival (depends how crowded it is). Any further pubs by individual arrangement. Drinking alcohol is not essential but recommended. About 15 miles plus whatever distance you need to do from the start and finish.

http://www.fetcheveryone.com/route-276807 for the route.

This is a top notch day out, featuring the sixth annual running of the race around the fishing pond at the Coopers Arms. We usually meet up with a few old members at the Nags Head.

Hybrid or Mountain Bike probably most suitable, but you can go by road rather than canal to Shardlow from Weston if you prefer.

Finally got time to return to the club, both virtually and physically, and I'm on the injured step.................

Good post Chris.

We were just discussing this on Sunday evening so expect Alan, Rob & Myself to be in attendance.

Hopefully there will be a decent turnout as it's a top day out.

Bradbourne F.R. comments noted - it's also the Double or Quit (5 / 10 miles) at Shipley Country Park the night before - 5PM start!

And another reminder, weather doesn't look too bad. See you at the Navigation, Breaston.

A top day everyone!

Cycling, train spotting (or not as the case may be), rock and roll, beer, savoury snacks, mini race around the lake, 2 of us going astray for a while and decent weather to boot!
