Grafham Water was host to August's SNCC Family ride. Thirteen riders of all ages met outside Rutland Cycling for a lap of the reservoir and the promise of free ice creams for the under 16's.
Club members Richard Ostler and John Martin brought their family's and James Coulthard rode over from St Neots to join the fun too.
The weather was perfect and everyone enjoyed a lovely ride on the circular trail at a pace that suited them. Refreshments and ice cream were enjoyed at the Harbour View Cafe before we set off for the final couple of miles around the dam. No-one was left behind but there were a couple of riders stretching their legs one the final dam section, everyone has a little competitive edge it seems!
My sincere thanks for Richard, John and James for coming along. Oliver and I had a great time and hope to see some new faces on the final family ride of the year in September.
September's ride will be held on Sunday 8th September 2019. Meet in the market square at 9am for a ride on route 51 up to Grafham Water via Hail Weston and return leg via Offord.
