EasTRiding Social Scene Report for February 2018

Sunday 11th February was our first run of the year. The night before had been 8C with lots of rain, so I thought that there wouldn’t be much salt remaining on the roads. It was a brilliantly sunny morning, as forecast, but the temperature was now down to 4C. So obviously it was the TR (although others thought – or were persuaded - to take saloons). The run started at our monthly meeting venue, The Light Dragoon, Etton. Malcolm, the Landlord, had offered to provide us with bacon butties and a hot drink before we set out. I have to say that they were really superb bacon rolls. All our winter runs should start from a warm pub with delicious bacon rolls!! So obviously we were a little later setting out. Locally, the lanes were thick with mud in many places. Given the season and state of the lanes we took a direct main road (well B-road) route to Burton Agnes Hall for their Snowdrops Walk. We collected Driffield residents in passing our usual Driffield starting point. The snowdrops and walk were wonderful. As we came back onto the lawn in front of the Hall John Sherburn exclaimed “Get the deck-chairs out!” It was a lovely warm spot out of the slight (but very icy) breeze. The café was very busy but had an overflow seating area, although we found places in the main café. However, none of us ate very heavily after those bacon butties. A really good day out. Some missed this event through the clash with Stoneleigh, others through colds, etc. You missed a good one!
