7 Spinners ride to Topsham

After many weeks of rain cancelled rides the Spinners midweek social riders finally managed to get out and ride to Topsham in glorious March sunshine. The ride passes Exeter Airport and a newly created wetlands at Clyst St Mary. The destination was the Route 2 Café in Topsham that not only services bikes but serves coffee and cake. The return leg involved sampling part of the Exe Valley cycle route to Exmouth and then many lanes via Woodbury Salterton back to Honiton. Chris James nearly had an altercation with an irate driver who had no reason for his abuse which added a bit of spice to the ride. It was also good to welcome Lyn Grady back to cycling after a long layoff due to an injured ankle.
