Waiting for the committee meeting to start!

The committee meeting was soon over in record time as we all invited to Richard West’s home in Foolow for a evening  meal.

Sunday Morning

Getting ready to ride home!

Yes it was raining and I felt sorry for anyone who had ride home in it, it was bad enough watching rain fall as Peter drove me back to North Lancashire where it was sunny afternoon.

Looking  at the map before riding home.

Myself  and Peter stop for brew and some to eat in the Tearoom in Eyam before heading back to North  Lancashire.
