Wetherby – Sherburn in Elmet, Saturday 20th January 2024, 36 miles

Riders: Pete Cartledge, Dave Westerman, Sean Christie & me, Alec Marley

Route: Wetherby, NCR 665, Toulston, Stutton, Ulleskelf, Cawood, Sherburn Aero Club, Sherburn in Elmet, Aberford, Bramham then to our separate homes in Boston Spa, Wetherby & Bardsey.

A red sky in morning was not what I wanted to see before I set off to Wetherby for the Saturday social ride. However I needn’t have worried … what’s a bit of wind!?!?

Setting off with Dave along the NCR and after a bit of hick-up gathering the Boston crowd, off we went with the focus to the obligatory cafe stop … this time it was the Sherburn Aero Club. It was a surprise to hear it was a first for Sean.

Setting off after a break of sitting in the warm and good chit chat we remembered we had to face the wind and cold. At last, as we arrived in Aberford as we looked forward to the wind being behind us. As we flew into Bramham we all said our goodbyes as we headed off on our own journeys home. Thanks guys for the company and hopefully having 4/5 layers will not be needed next time!?!?!
