Club Run Sunday 4th November
There were 16 riders out today for the clubrun to Rhossili. Guests were Lee (2/4) & 4 Swansea Uni C.C. riders.
Welcome to Jeremy Davies (Cc above) who joined the club today, I not sure how we’re going to cope with 2 Jeremys in the club?!
We rode through Brynhyfryd & Cockett and up to Gypsy Cross and down through Tycoch and Killay. Onto the Gower, where the roads were covered in leaves and standing water. John turned off at Kilvrough. Andy & Bob (our very own Compo & Clegg!) wisely turned off at Scurlage with Jeremy, just before the light rain started. The rest of us turned off the main road towards Rhossili, where we met a flock of sheep on the road, being moved between fields.
Cafe stop at the Bistro on the Bay.
It was raining heavily as we left the cafe, with a grim ride back to Swansea. Back to Scurlage and through the lanes to Burry Green and right onto the main road. Along the North Gower road and Gowerton. Through Waunarllwyd and back to Cockett, where we went our separate ways.
P.S. When riding with Phil G. across Penplas Common on the way home, a car slowed beside me and a woman leaned out of the back seat and slapped me on the arse. I think it was a woman…at least, I hope it was a woman! Anyways…
