Ride Report – Stourhead to Boyton, no, Tisbury, no, Motcombe

Saturday 19 January 2019 Mary has had a lousy start to 2019.  With a bad crash on New Years Day and a very disappointing weeks skiing holiday (or not skiing as was the case), she was unable to lead her ride today as sitting on the saddle was a no-no. I volunteered to step in. […]

Ride Report – Stalbridge to Dorchester

Saturday 8 December 2018 I always look forward to those Saturday rides that start from Dikes Supermarket, meaning that I can enjoy my dog walk, read the papers and still have time for a leisurely breakfast. I met Roger on arriving at Dikes and we both agreed that the day’s ride could be quite challenging […]

Ride Report – Stalbridge to Blandford

Saturday 22 December 2018 A dry Saturday at last!!  Unfortunately, Mike Anyan the advertised ride leader had to bow out due to bereavement. Highlights of the day:- Caroline was decked out in a Santa’s hat over her ski helmet – super. Mary’s bike was adorned with fairy lights – will look super on darker days! […]

Ride Report – Sherborne to Wincanton (Postponed)

Saturday 8 December 2018 Texts and calls had started to arrive at 8am; strong winds, heavy rain and poor visibility forecast, apologies for absence received. A very good day for the Turbo Trainer. The Wednesday route check had been in total contrast, blue skies as we climbed The Combe to rendezvous with Ron and his […]

Ride Report – Sturminster Newton to Bishops Caundle

Saturday I December 2018 The early rain had eased to a steady drizzle by the time five of us met at the Poets Corner Café. There was some sort of Christmas market going on with several Father Christmases in attendance. Ed, Mary, Charlie and newcomer David W-M and I set off through Hazelbury Bryan to […]

Ride Report- Stalbridge to Cattistock

Saturday 24 November 2018 Would you ‘Adam and Eve’ it – I managed to walk the dogs from 8.00 to 9.30 this morning without a drop of rain falling, but after a swift change of clothes and setting off to Thyme after Time Café at 9.45, a lightish rain raised its ugly head – proving […]

Ride Report – Gillingham to Crockerton

Saturday 17 November 2018 On an overcast and chilly morning I arrived at Orchard Park to find Richard already sat drinking his tea. He immediately quizzed me on which route I was taking and on the mention of Longleat decided that he would make his own way to lunch. For a short while it was […]

Ride Report – Mere to Shepton Montague

Saturday 10 November 2018 As usual I cheated and went by car to Hunters Lodge only to be rumbled by Ron who was cycling. The wet weather has hardly come as a surprise and heavy showers were forecast so I was well pleased to see Nicky, Peter, Ron, Dave, Mary, Ben at Hillbrush plus the […]
