VC Baracchi riders enjoy club run in mild weather

Velo Club Baracchi riders took advantage of a mild weekend to enjoy a club run to Dunwich and back.

It was a well-attended ride and all the better for the dry roads and unseasonal warmth.

Three riders chose not to go the full distance but everyone made it to Halesworth before the ride separated.

The ten riders at Dunwich were able to sit outside at the café for coffee and cake and three riders on the shorter route stopped for refreshments at Posh Pigs in Ellough.
