A report from the ride leader, Bryan Stanton
We stayed dry till Pickering passing the fracking demonstration at Kirby Misperton (demonstrators with placards and lots of police!) and arrived in Pickering without rain. Then as we were leaving the rain started and got heavier all the way back to Hovingham where it dried up a bit! Pedalling into the wind was hard and going uphill even harder meaning that I adopted the management strategy of leading from the back! Still it gave the others frequent rests.
I need to say thanks to everyone for waiting; I was getting more and more wrecked as the ride wore on and eventually I was dropped all together and got home (in sunshine!) at my own pace.
Once again thanks to everyone for their help
