Origami Ride Derby

23 riders met at Derby railway station to follow the Cloud Trail to Worthington. The crosswinds did not deter anyone as we followed paths, canals and a disused railway.
There was a good variety of folding and separable bikes and Trices on the ride. For the spotters: 3 Birdys (Red, Grey and an attractive metallic green Australian version), Moultons (Pylon and Standard), Foldit, Micro, Trice (Classic and XXL), 7 Bromptons (one an SP), a “demonstrator” Downtube, Specialised, Dawoo Shuttle and 2 large wheel bikes (Kaffenback and Raleigh). A hot meal was welcome at the Bulls Head in the village of Wilson. No punctures! Thank you to everyone for supporting the ride.
The next ride will be on the 9th December 2006, starting from the Tea Rooms in Meriden.
