Sunday 17th December 2023 Manhoc ride to Rudyard Lake – on a dry winter’s, part sunny, day with a surprising 12 degrees, the gang of 10 riders and 2 pillions headed off from our usual Poplar Services at 10.30am.
It was a shorter than usual ride and we headed south via Sandbach and Congleton to the scenic lake where the narrow-gauge steam lakeside station café was the planned lunch stop – but it was closed!
However, with a 10minute walk following the railway track, across the lake bridge, we found a welcome at the other café, were we consumed quite large tasty breakfast barms and drinks.
Return, was again a shorter run to beat the early winter darkness, but this time via Chelford and back to Pops for final coffee, cakes and hugs.
Excellent Cheshire biking roads and greetings were given to 3 new riders. Another great Manhoc ride out.
