All through summer we've been doing a regular ride out to the Plough on a Thursday night. A quick pint or two and a hot garlic chicken sandwich then home.
For me it is about 20 miles, Karl and Alison just over 25. Now that the nights are drawing in and due to work pressures, we haven't been out for about 3 weeks. So this Thursday, armed with new lights for Karl, we set out. It was a really mild evening, but cloudy and no moonlight, so once we were away from the town and out in the country lanes, it was pitch black. We really needed the decent lights. We went the quick way as we had set off late due to fitting Karl's light. But it was well worth it.
This is the view when we got to the pub...
