Unofficial Ladies Day

I need to tread carefully here, today had two themes - unofficial ladies day and getting dirty - please don't mix them up.... Zoe, Selena and Jacqui were joining us for the spin, and Jonny, Andrew and other friends of the club were getting dirty at the cyclocross in Lady Dixon park.
As ever, the plan was based on the riders who turned up and the weather. A few of us wanted to get back early enough to watch the racing, which gave us a window of just under 3 hours plus a quick coffee. The route was pretty simple, via Sandy Lane to Hilden and on through Lisburn to Ballinderry, Aghalee and Moira. We hit the coffee stop at a busy time, so it took a while, but with everyone refuelled we headed home via Route 9. Everyone was in good shape as we came through Drumbeg.
Most of us pulled in to Lady Dixons in time to watch some of the thrills and spills. Andrew and Jonny were flying. It was great to catch up with good friends, but we all started to cool and headed home.

Thanks to the girls for your company. Hopefully you enjoyed and felt welcome.
