First of all 1,309 miles covered by Blaydon legs this week so well done all!
Secondly the Blaydon jerseys are getting spotted and getting some love! So many great comments on the design, Pedalling Squares have done us proud.
Today we went to see Spennymoor Cycling Club in their native County Durham. Some of us drove there, some of us took the plunge and rode there.
Three of the BCC members Rob, Paul and Justin extended the 40 mile loop of the ride alongside a ride home to 100 miles (and maybe a little more)
We had cobbles and hail too quite the mixture, all in all a great atmosphere on the ride a few tech issues tyre blow outs and a rear mech failure caused hassle for a few of us but all in all the ride went pretty much incident free (apart from the Garmin maps being a little fussy and telling us too late about the turns)
Rides like this with a show of around 15-20 show how strong cycling is and how clubs can run really well within a ‘social’ setting.
A cracking stop for coffee, cake (and Guinness for two!) in Hartlepool.
We look forward to either being guests or hosting Spenny again, if you’re a club and you’d like to ride out with us, get in touch. we’d be happy to try and arrange something.
