Out with the Old Gits CC for a reverse run of our normal one. We get a lie in this morning as the start time is from the prom at 8.45am. A bad start to the day for one of the chaps, he had a puncture as he arrived at the start. Quite chilly this morning, it was a mistake to think the autumn had not arrived yet, the sun shining was not a good indicator that shorts and thin gloves would be ideal. They weren't!
Stopped halfway round for the usual tea and cake at Caffles Garden Centre. The staff were preparing the place for Christmas and getting the tree/lights and stuff ready. We spotted this character sitting in the corner and decided to recruit him into the Old Gits Club so decked him out in the required safety gear. Not sure if he will turn up next Tuesday though.
Gathered around the Christmas tree, the Old Gits posed for a possible future Christmas card. Had to include the new recruit.
Good ride round, a good turnout, 14 plus a couple of guest riders, and thankfully by the finish it did get warmer. Covered 23 miles today.
