As well as being fun; decent weather; a good route and another jolly good turnout, the May Allez Prestwich ride was somewhat cursed but it still turned out to be a winner.
Right from the get-go, as we crossed Bury New Road and ambled towards our first little incline up Heywoood Road, we were one down one person as Julie, out on her first ride with us, had to go home after about a mile as her lad had been locked out of the house. Bad start.We soldiered on only a mile or so further before we lost another. Paul wasn’t feeling it and decided to call it a day early in the ride.
