|The Runners & Riders|
And what a day we picked. Amazingly warm considering it was still February, and it even tempted Scott and Mart to bare their knees and go with shorts. I however, opted for a more conservative approach.
With the inevitable last minute pre ride faffage complete we were off, and were soon heading out of Shifnal towards Cosford. I’d put a route together with the aim of avoiding any serious climbing, and it was nice to spin along and have a chat with some of the newcomers to the group.
Old habits die hard though and on the rise up to Boscobel House there was a cyclist in the distance getting ever nearer. It seemed too good an opportunity to miss, and off I went. As I got closer it was hard not to notice the bike he was riding. A stunning late 90’s steel Cinelli. 100% original, and sporting the original Campag kit. Just lovely! I had a chat with the guy and complimented him on his bike. I used the opportunity at the top take a few pics and we were soon all back together.
