A Deluge, A Bus Shelter And The Dying Fly

CLUB RIDE TO FITLING – 06/11/16

This week’s main club ride took us back to the flat lands of Holderness.

We endeavour to please as many people as possible and as such we start off around 1 in 6 of our rides in East Hull.Riding around the Holderness plains is completely different from riding in the Yorkshire Wolds.
You may be riding on the flat but you’ll nearly always have a strong wind to contend with, and Saturday’s ride was no exception.The forecast was for an overcast cold morning with a strong Easterly growing stronger as the day progressed. ┬áThe sun was expected to make an appearance around 10-11am, hopefully at the coffee stop time!
