A good turnout today allowed the group to split into a moderate and a brisk ride. Jim had planned a ride to Burleydam but was unable to make it so Dave P, Steve T, Keith, Paul and Andy took an impromptu route via Harthill and Wrenbury. With favourable conditions and a slight tailwind we were ahead of schedule so took in an additional loop south of Audlem and back to the Combermere Arms at Burleydam.
To return we took a more direct route via Ravensmoor and the southern side of the Peckforton hills where three of us took a leisurely excursion to admire the cottages and views of this delightful lane before retracing to cut around the eastern end of the hills to return to the Ice Cream Farm to join the others for coffee and cake.
