7 cyclists turned up on one of the shortest days of the year. We had Viv,Iain, Paul, Margaret, Kathy, Kevin & John

Even after stopping to chat at the start and an impromptu take-out coffee at Carlos Viv got up to the pub just on 12am. This pub can be quite popular and the timing was perfect as we got a table in the pub near the fire.

We found the badger on New Road in Plaitford on the return. He decided to remain in Paitford!
