Conspicuous consumption on the Little Green Ride

A motley crew headed out through bluebell woods to the snug at the Lilley Arms for lunch on our May 2010 Little Green Ride. This included in training triathletes and the usual potterers! After lunch the ride headed for Whitwell and tea... and manure!

On an earlier occasion someone purchased a pair of bike wheels at the teastop at Whitwell (where there is a small second hand bike shop). This time one of the riders decided that the manure on sale was too much of a bargain to miss and bought two bags! There is a precedent to all this conspicuous consumption - on a much earlier ride a lamp standard was purchased and carried home!

Thanks to Jacques Olivier for leading and to Sue for shepherding.
