Early days at the moment

Origami Jan 09 Report

11 Riders met at the RAF Museum Cosford in sub zero temperatures. Their offer of a free hot drink for visitors arriving by cycle was most welcome. Thank you Cosford. Three Birdy reds were a reminder of past rides when numbers were greater. Welcome to a new rider on his ICE Trice QNT. Other riders rode: Dahon x 1 Brompton x 1 Moultons x 5. 1 puncture, the first in 2009!

1) Wrapping up warm for the ride. The distance was reduced by 10 miles to 15 today due to the weather. Buzzard count on route was 7.

2) Arriving at the Red Lion for hot food.

3) This was an opportune time to try out the "Powergrip" foot straps fitted to the Trice, which we thought may offer an alternative to wearing cycle specific shoes when touring.

4) On our return, due to the icy approach, we chose the safer option of using the foot bridge over the ford.

5) The reduced ride allowed us to have a look around the museum Site Plan

6) A folding motorised bike

7) Checking out the planes

8) Stacked planes

Thanks to Paul for a most enjoyable day on the Shropshire lanes.
