A chilly start but soon warmed up enough, Axe edge climb for starters did the job.

Esther managed to talk all the way up, that delightful bit of churpy banter as per normal, (god her fitness really has improved).

17 riders in total enjopyed the undualting ride via Flash, Royal Cottage, into Longnor then on to Crowdecote bank.

Old John (79) thought about a short cut but cleared it no problem, Esther managed to talk again all the way up Crowdecote bank as well!

We eventually realised she gone and got an Ebike!!!!!!!!!!!!!
