The Post Christmas Mince Pie burner 

Great little post Xmas ride to burn off some excess sloth. A somewhat chilly but lovely dry, bright day. Ten riders left Swinton then out via Astley to Glazebrook and over Warby Bridge, unfortunately losing one rider en-route (or did he just peel off and leave us?). Mill Lane, under the mucky bridge, Burford Lane and past High Leigh garden centre. Two riders then decided to explore Arley hall garden Centre by themselves not realising it was shut LOL. After a bit of searching, the two lost sheep were found and guided gently back to the flock despite threats of throwing the ride leader on the promised open fire at the Red Lion on arrival. 

Two more “riders” joined the group at Pickmere via automotive assistance (the horror LOL). A cheeky pint (or two for some) to keep the blood/alcohol ratio at the correct level for the time of here (I think I heard the phrase “antifreeze” used) and a snack plus the usual banter was enjoyed before nine riders made their way back home via Frog Lane whilst two more were observed returning back to the Red Lion (we assume; they must have enjoyed it that much!).
