There were 11 riders out yesterday for the Santa clubrun to Southgate. Festive clothing included the obligatory santa hat & tinsel on handlebars and helmets. Guests were Nic Cleave (4/4) & Tom Withers (2/4). Ian W. was riding a single speed (48×19?) & Trevor a fixed (42x?).
We rode down to SA1, crossed the swing bridge and joined the coastal bike path. Into Mumbles, we saw Meirion riding the other way. Onto Bracelet Bay and up Plunch Lane. Down Caswell hill, Trevor was pedalling furiously downhill with his brakes on! Up the other side, towards Bishopston, Ian W. did the walk of shame on the 20% hill.
Our stop was the 3 cliffs cafe in Southgate. Jason joined us for a chat outside and showed us Meirion’s flood photos from Saturday. As a result we decided to keep to higher ground and returned via Vennaway Lane and right towards the Airport and Killay. Through town and the football traffic and home.
Points:- 4 = Mark W., Paul, Mark N., Andy, Mark K. & Trevor. 3 = Ian W. & Ian H. 2 = Rhys. Guests = 2.
