Well that was a very eventful Christmas Ride/Drive. As forecast the conditions were chronic and a tad dangerous so the vast majority of the club members opted to drive for our festive brunch at the Wizard cafe.
…hit the deck on black ice
News of who had decided to ride was sketchy until Sam Marshall reported that it was …erm, a bit icy. It seems Dev Devaney aka Rudolf had hit the deck on black ice.
Fellow riders Baz James, Stuart Lloyd and Chris Fowler all did a uey and were intercepted by myself and Rob Duckett in the broom wagon. Dev and Sam bailed for good whilst Chris, Baz and Stuey returned to the Wizard by car.
…Alan Clark wondering where the peloton was
Myself and Rob D continued in the broom wagon and eventually came across a bemused Alan Clark wondering where the peloton was. He pledged to continue on but ( not surprisingly ) also hit the deck around Arley hall. Both Dev and Alan none the worse for wear I am pleased to report.
23 hungry Wheelers enjoyed lovely grub
A festive occasion was had at The Wizard. 23 hungry Wheelers enjoyed lovely grub and great ambience supplied by Harriet and the team, very enjoyable.
Is there a lesson for the day I wonder?????? 🙂 erm — take heed of ice warnings.
Is the ‘Crash of the Year Award‘ so highly sought after? 🙂
