A couple of weeks ago (20th July) we went on a rare Saturday club ride, out to Kelsall to the Greedy Pig Cafe.
We have been so lucky with the weather recently, even at 7am it was just under 20 degrees!
9 of us headed out from The Twelfth man towards Eastham and then the Boat Museum where we met up with 2 new additions to the club! First was Mark, who I have been talking to on twitter, and has just returned from the Tour, and second was Darren s new Steed!!!

The first challenge of the day was Primrose lane, it isn't a mountain, or even a sever hill, but it does stretch the legs!
We then rode on through Manley to the infamous Yeld lane.
As you round the corner of this road, it seems like a wall of tarmac rises up above you! It is quite steep, but isn't very long so a quick effort soon sees you at the top!

As always, Raina gave us a warm welcome and it was great to catch up with her, and hear about her cycling adventures with Chester Road Club.

We continued on the Dee path to the new Burton Marsh path, and back to the Twelfth Man Via Heswall and Irby.
