|Yavuz chats to Sanford|
Our day was dry, not very warm but far from cold – not quite the tropical heatwave we were told to expect but one way or another we had a fantastic turnout of 16 for Paul's ride to the Stables Inn, Hopesgate. A small group began the day by meeting for coffee at the Poppy House, before riding as a loose and disorderly bunch via minor lanes to Chirbury, picking up further riders along the way. We turned towards Marton and turned again at Etsell, onto a road which rose and fell in a series of undulations. The minor lane to the lunch stop was a bit of a drag, so I was very glad to get there.
