Once again we were lucky with the weather. It wasn’t amazingly sunny but there was not much wind (except on the drag from Ringinglow back over Stanage) and it stayed dry despite a slightly dodgy forecast. There were around 20 people on the long ride and around 5 or so on the short ride. Most met up for lunch in Great Longstone which was as excellent as ever. This year the long course was marked out with signs for the first time which seemed to work well.
