Ride by Liz and Ken

*****Ride and report by Liz & Ken We met for our February ride at Sumners Ponds in Barns Green – 7 tandems and one solo. The café was the focal point before we set off, where we met up with Chris and Helen who had their breakfast there after riding 18 miles to the start – impressive as they saw the sunrise on the journey! It was a glorious February day, luckily no frost early but sunny all day and feeling almost warm if you could shelter from the northerly breeze. We took a slightly roundabout route to Cranleigh for lunch – stopping on route on a bridge over the Wey and Arun canal for a rest and snacks. The early starters left us after lunch and the rest of the group headed back to the start with the wind largely behind us, we even added on a few extra miles towards the end as it was such a pleasant afternoon for riding. About 37 miles in all ridden in very pleasant company. Thanks to all who joined us for the day.
