Apologies to those who missed this when it was published on our Facebook page.
16 riders took part in the event although Richard Carter did have to dash home to get his cycling shoes and started six minutes after everyone else!
Mentions to Stephen Bailes who had more tinsel on his bike than our Christmas tree and Dave Kirton’s mitigating excuse that he did have his Christmas jumper on.
