Penistone – 15 May 21

It doesn’t happen very often. But when it does, it’s a bonus. And today was one of those rare occasions when pilots outnumbered stokers. That meant a solo ride for Paul and a lie in for Drew.

So 12 tandems and a solo on our most popular away from base ride. Penistone. And thankfully the rain held off until we were all back at Julie’s cafe tucking into our bacon butties and the like.

Great to see Pilots Charles K and Peter, and Stoker Colin, back in the saddle.

And finally, today’s quote of the day award goes to Barney. Speaking to Brittany in encouraging tones “Shut your gob or I’ll throw you into that muddy pool, pull you out backwards and feed you to those pigs.”

A sight for cycling eyes. Our two trailers, fully loaded with blue Orbits, on arrival at Penistone.
