Poolton ride 4th December 2011


Snow and wind the week before did not bode well with memories of Feb ‘11 and cancelled rides. But this is a ride that is close to the coast, no hills and great draining sandy soil; so it was always on for those who could get there. And the turn out was good.

17 riders enjoyed a 10 and 17 km route through fields, pasture and beautiful woods. The ground was perfect, suiting the bare footers in particular; little road work and sandy tracks.

Lovely cantering loops in the woods. The 'up and down' sections were hilarious; like being on a roller coaster. And then some logs to pop over for the more adventurous.

A well marked ride with ground that suited the weather and time of year.

A big thanks to Sarah Norris and Tilly Helpburn-Wright for organising this ride. Helpers, Warwick, Lorna T and Lorna B did a great job as heppy helpers on the day. And Lois and Pat made fantastic soup! Thank you all.

Colin Philip at Poolton - thank you Colin for making us so welcome at the venue and doing all that extra work to make the ride run so smoothly. Your support is very much appreciated.


To come.
