The sun shone on the righteous on our Christmas ride to Rivington, the not so righteous stayed at home. A dozen riders set out from Bury, some at a steady pace, the other group at considerable speed, it was good to see many of the bikes decorated with Chrissie things, especially the tandem rode by Nick and Lindsay, Nick resplendent in his Father Christmas outfit (the resemblance was uncanny) and Lindsay cunningl
y disguised as an Elf. John’s bike looked well, decorated entirely with mud.
We had a really enjoyable ride and met up with the faster group at the Kaf at Rivington, where we ate lots of bacon butties, the vegetarian bacon butties were particularly good.
Both groups returned together to Bury via Bolton in plenty of time to get ratlegged in the pub
If you only do one Clarion ride per year, you really should make it this one next time.
Fancy dress is compulsory next year!!!
