There is no longer a breeze of a ride in the BK team, twenty is plenty being replaced with a faster pace. 5 set off from MC and pick up Andy at Tickton Hall. Neil, Jenny & Dave, Dave and Matt make up the 5. Clockwise route to Hornsea is decided and the ride is glorious in the sun and a pleasant breeze. A fairly normal ride to Hornsea was enjoyed by all, no Mr Grumps this ride. Hornsea Mere was in all its glory and we all had a pleasant repast.
We blasted back to Mappleton, Great Hatfield but missed the turn off towards Long Riston so added a mile to the ride before realization sank in. Long Riston negotiated the back road towards Routh was torturous with the heat and a head wind to contend with, which may have contributed to the accident.
Four of us involved, but poor Jenny being the worst off. Dave sped off like the Knight in Shining Armour to collect his car to pick up the fairly hurt maiden for medical attention. Fortunately another Knight turned up in a pick up first and whisked her off to the hospital with a suspected broken wrist. Hopefully it isn’t but Jenny stoically thought it was. Childbirth must hurt as bad as they say chaps! Watch this space. Dave & Jenny will hopefully keep us updated.
