Another cloudless, sunny spring day brought out Dave & Liz P, Andy, Ray, Mike M., Paul, Clive, Dave, Martin & Liz D. In addition we welcomed a new rider, Mike from Vicars Cross. At the Roodee cafe a ride to Overton was decided upon. We took the usual route through Rossett, Holt, Shocklach, Worthenbury, Bangor and Erbistock. Clive and Dave had other commitments and turned back at Bangor. Lunch was taken at the White Horse where service was rather slow but understandably so as they were catering for a funeral gathering. No hurrying the dead! We were all glad to get going again as it was colder inside the pub than it was in the sun outside. Basically the same route back but via the lanes to Worthenbury. New Mike showed good form and the group held together well. Mike M. peeled off at Farndon whilst the remainder off us could not resist Kaffee und Kuchen at Hildergards Cafe. Finally the usual routes back to Chester to finish off a satisfactory day. If only we did all our riding in such good weather.
