Ride Report – Sparkford to Westhay

Saturday 8 February 2020

Was this a club run?  At Haynes I was joined by Arthur, but only for coffee as he headed home afterwards.  Keith and his wife arrived just after 10.35 but were there to look around the museum.  Charlie and Ron had had mechanical problems and called to say they wouldn’t be riding.  No-one else turned up!  I rode alone to Westhay via North Barrow, West Pennard and Godney.  Fine sunny weather with a tailwind.  Arriving at Sweets tea room at 12.30 Nicky and Peter had already arrived and we had lunch with another couple who had arrived on an electric tandem.  Food was good value and filling.  Peter and Nicky left about half an hour before I did, eventually I headed back into an increasingly strong headwind via Shapwick, Pedwell and High Ham, eventually catching them near Muchelney.  After riding together for a while I headed home via Martock and Stoke-sub-Hambdon. A nice day for a ride considering the gales on Sunday, pity no-one else agreed!!
