Colston Road made a pleasant but hilly introduction to club activities for our new youngsters, who proved admirably that being young doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t keep up with the rest!

The ride through Staverton to Broadhempston passed without incident, but that cannot be said for the remainder of the evening. Four days of rain had left the track from Beaston to Halswell with a higher than usual muddy puddle count and the boys, being boys, somehow managed to attract a sizeable proportion of the stuff to their nice clean clothes. Far from being concerned about who was going to clean up the mess when they arrived home, they appeared to thoroughly enjoy the whole escapade and wanted to know if there was any more mud they could cycle through!

A few steep hills and a hay fight brought everyone back to reality – well, back to Five Lanes actually, from where the track route was taken to the main road and home. Parents may be relieved to hear that mud and late nights will definitely be OFF the menu for the next few weeks – until the holidays at least!
