Northern Ireland Small Wheel Ride

Chris Sharp reports:
On Sunday 1st July we held the first small wheel ride in our area (maybe the first in N.I.) and six cyclists turned up. Two F frame Moulton's, two Brompton's,a single speed Triumph 20 with a young girl on board and a very trick Triumph 20. We left Coleraine and travelled along the cycle path to Portstewart. where we rode along the waters edge to Portrush. From there we could see Scotland on the horizon, and we stopped at the harbour cafe in Portrush for tea and coffee.
After we returned to our bikes we retraced our route in sunshine to Coleraine with 15 miles completed. Everyone was invited back to Willie Carton's home near by for tea and coffee before we all left for home.
This ride today gave me a buzz and also I had a few e-mails from other cyclists who had family committments or were not in the country today.
I will have a couple of small wheel rides next year and this all looks good for the future.
