    Saturday 10th November - Barton Camp

    Post  Martin on Sat Nov 10, 2012 5:26 pm

    Thirteen people turned up for our annual ride to Barton Camp.
    After a very heavy shower to start off the weather brightened up.
    The ladies at Barton Camp provided the usual excellent fried breakfast with toast and sweats (I eat more than my fair share!).
    On the way back I managed to collide with an oncoming car as I rounded a corner in Wick St Lawrence on the wrong side of the road. It my own stupid fault as I thought I could see any cars coming over the newly cliped hedges - Wrong!
    I skidded and managed to fall just in front of the stopped car. The only real damage was to my pride although my right leg is feeling bruised.
    I think Barton Camp were pleased with the donations so a good morning really.

    That's not good. Glad to hear you are okay after your 'near miss'. Have just spent 3 hours cleaning my bicycle after yesteday - soooo grimy and gritty. Have also replaced brake blocks so expect I'll go straight over the handlebars next week. Didn't need anything to eat when I got home - wonder why?
