Nicky's First Club Run

With a big contingent riding the Billy Kerr we weren't expecting a huge turnout today. Add to that it being Nicky's first club run, Broke Back's (formerly Spartacus) first club ride in ages and I was a pint short of blood, we weren't looking to set the road alight.
Four of us rode across to Holywood, then up Creightons Green Road. My usual rush of blood up the climb was even more short lived than normal leaving Ronan and Broke Back to fight it out. We dropped down towards the George, then into Ards via Mountain Rd. Up the front of Scrabo as far as the car park, then back down to coffee in Comber.
Keeping it classy, we dined Al fresco at the Georgian where I re enacted my 70's childhood trying to lure away the wasps with jam. After lovely food and coffee we saddled up again and headed out to Lisbane. Right and across to Ballygowan, before nipping into the lanes and over to the Clontnacally Rd.
Nicky did great on his first ride and seemed to enjoy it. Nothing too strenuous for the rest of us and nice to get out in a bit of sunshine.
