Old Gits in Reverse 24

Old Gits day and today it is meet at the north end of the prom and cycle the reverse route to normal.  Stopping at Caffles for tea and vittles the remainder of the ride is out through Puxton and Banwell to Weston.  Good forecast today, certainly no wet weather gear required.

In the poly tunnel

For some reason Caffles had put the tables and chairs in a net poly tunnel that stores all the hanging baskets. Very salubrious surroundings for our tea and cake.  Spent a good hour in there chinwagging before setting off again.

Silver Moor Lane

Two of the Old Gits making their way to the little climb at the end of the lane.  There was a mishap later when one of the riders collided with a bollard in the middle of a cycle path.  An ambulance checked him out and a bruised knee (and stinging nettle rashes) were the worst injuries.  He made it home, albeit slowly in one piece.

An enjoyable ride out, in good weather.  24 miles covered.
