“Well top of the mornin’ to yez” and no sign of green anywhere. A beautiful clear and sunny sky greeted the few Knights who braved the windy conditions. Pugwash, Matt and DaveW were the first to arrive on parade, shortly joined by Dave and Jenny.
With westerly winds 🌬️, it was suggested a trip northwards to the Bike Cave may be best. The first part of the parade proved to be the easiest with the wind mostly behind, as we passed through town to Weel and Tickton.
At Leven through to Brandesburton, the side winds started assert pressure causing the occasional wobble as we passed gaps in hedges. Paddy McGinty’s goats, fresh back from mountain training, jumped onto the front to maintain a quick pace, while the rest clung on for dear life.
At North Frodingham the parade turned more towards the wind making the going much tougher. The original plan was to take a detour through Foston, Great Kelk and Nafferton however, due to the adverse wind we decided to head directly to Driffield. On reaching Wansford, Dave and Jenny turned off to head home, leaving the shamrock trio to continue for the waiting feast at the Bike Cave.
The return journey proved rather tougher with the winds generally against or on the starboard bow. Despite the strong wind, it was a pleasure to get out riding once more after a week or so of inclement weather.
