3 Loops

Postby lfcquin » Mon Mar 16, 2015 10:19 pm

Hi Everyone,
As you know, I was looking for a volunteer to host the 3 Loops rides this coming weekend. Unfortunately no volunteer was forthcoming, but fear not, the rides will still go ahead. John has updated the rides section on the website with the details for this coming weekend, including route cards and start times.

Starting point will be at Broken Cross. The finish will be at Flora's Tea Room, opposite the Blacksmith Arms on the Chelford Road. Angela, the owner of the tea room has been informed and is ready to accomodate weary riders.

Without an organiser then there is nobody to take register at the start and the end therefore I will leave a log book in Flora's tea room for all riders to record their involvement. If you wish to have your ride recorded for participation in the Richard Elliot Trophy then you must provide details of a seconder who can confirm your participation in the event. Their details will need to be recorded in the log book next to your own.

I hope you all have fun, unfortunately I won't be joining you, I'll be riding in circles in Skelmersdale and hoping for better luck than in my previous races.

Thanks
Chris

I'm up for three loops. A word of advice: if anyone resembling Phil B****e points out a 'short cut that takes you direct to the Tattenhall Ice Cream Farm', I suggest you ignore him (unless you fancy plenty of mud, two barbed-wire fences and a bog). Oh, how we laughed!

Martin and John Jackson have spent many hours updating route sheets and GPX files so you do not get lost. Please see the first post in this topic for all the files. Note the 1 loop GPX file has been improved (no route changes) please re download it you downloaded it prior to Tuesday night.

Just a NOTE that the NEW pdf routes posted this week a quite a bit different.

Phil - that's because last year the Lock Gate Cafe (aka Flavours) had closed so we had to re-route to three stops at the Tattenhall Ice Cream Farm. This year we're thankfully back to the traditional route as the Lock Gate Cafe has been reborn as the Lock Gate Coffee House, which I, as a keen observer of 21st century mores, regard as an interesting commentary on the changing social structures of the Cheshire heartland that we all know and love. Full English anyone? No thank you matey, mine's a lightly grilled slice of avocado with tomato reduction, drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and served with cheddar shavings and complimentary Fortnum's Chocolossus biscuit (offer limited to one biscuit per customer).

:cheers:

In the old days [I'm talking 1970s here] it was a formidable place thick with fag smoke and fruit machines.
Often frequented by bearded gentlemen with lots of tattoos. Oh and always lots of motorbikes outside.

How times have changed.

See you at Broken Cross tomorrow at 8am

Phil

Didn't know that it was one of Wiggo's haunts :)
