Merry Christmas

Today was the traditional Rough Stuff Fellowship festive walk and we couldnt have asked for a better day at Rivington in the West Pennine Moors.  How many days in a row has it rained for? And how many more to come?? Today was beautiful, even some blue in the sky.

There was much discussion of tandem exploits from Ken & Dot - sounds like the raleighs that the Tandem Club run are great fun.  So even more cycling trip plans for 2013 - at this rate I wont be able to fit them all in.  Do I ever need those school holidays back!!! March will have rides every day of Easter for the RSF AGM.  April has a couple of days up near Coniston and in the middle of Wales. May's RSF family friendly camping trip is up near Penrith (which sadly clashes with the tandem club's Loire Valley trip). All that before Spring is out. Hopefully next year wont be quite as wet as 2012 so we might get some more use out of the tent.
Following the walk, we rejoined those who had chosen to cycle and enjoyed food and brass band music.

What with all the cycling penned in for the new year, I'd best make the most of a restful christmas and new year.

Very best wishes to you all and thanks to all the fellow cyclists that have made this last year so memorable and enjoyable.


  1. The Hall Barn looks like a real find. Thanks for this festive holiday report, G!

    1. It was jam packed today. There seemed to be a Harley Davidson meet going on too so plenty of bikes to look at of the motorised variety too.
      Rivington area is lovely for walking & cycling - four places to choose from for food, cakes and brews (and one across the road)
