The group consisting of Dave and Liz on the tandem, with Jim and Bryan, joined the moderate group as far as the end of Beeston Castle Lane when we turned towards Peckforton, past the castle gates, and then entered Bunbury by the back passage, so to speak. The Yew Tree, on the corner at Spurstow was our lunch stop, after a couple of sorties past a set of road works when the workers had to move their diggers to allow us past. The pub has been re-furbished and offered a reasonable choice of ales and dishes on the menu.
The return journey was through the village, turning left by the church to emerge on the A49 just uphill of the Wild Boar Hotel. Then Left at Tiverton and back through Huxley and Greenlooms.
A total of 37 miles.
