East Midlands Migrate South for the Winter

It’s no mystery anymore!! East Midlands HOC headed south for the winter on our monthly ride.

An eleventh hour decision to head in the opposite direction to the planned Peak District ride almost paid off in avoiding the rain – we only had a bit of drizzle as we started off for home.

Seven people (Gary, Mick, Pete, Jack, Kev, Ian and Emma) on six bikes rode from Been Coffee near Derby to the Welcome Café a few miles the other side of Melton Mowbray.

The route followed a mix of roads, with various types of slippy stuff encountered (mud, gravel etc) on the way.

It was a safe ride there for all despite the lack of grip in places!! Breakfasts and lunches were eaten while we talked about Kev’s off road adventure (on four wheels) before heading home to give our bikes a clean!
