Wetherby – Ripon, 20th December 2020, 61 miles

A bright day, (almost the shortest in the year) ,with low sun and very little wind. Our destination was the Sun Parlour Café in Ripon to bid farewell to Caroline, who has run it so well for so long. We left Wetherby in two small groups and my group( Nick, Graham, Pete C and Frank), were lucky to meet Kathy on the way. She has been a member of the Wheelers for longer than most of us can recall. At the Café, some of us unfortunately had reasons to get home soon, but the Wheelers were well represented in the masked and socially distanced group who stayed to enjoy the out door coffee and sunshine. We’ll look forward to supporting the new café owners next year.
