4 Abbeys ride

W.W.W ride.
  Whirr,Weeze and Wet ride



Whirr  of the electric bike.

Wheeze from the other cyclists on the hills.

Wet because it always rains when we cycle.

I had the plans all sorted for the ride, sent them round our whatsapp group and everyone was happy with them Ian sorts and collects hire van on Saturday, 
arranges to collect 8 cycles and overnight bags over Sunday ready for Monday AM
This year we were using two cars to get the riders to the start locations and the original Mr Map my brother Graeme had been missing his cycling so also joined our group, making ten people nine cyclists and Ian our support driver

Ian hired van until Saturday as It was as cheap for a week as it was for three days hire.

That was the plans all sorted or so I thought.

Peter got in touch suggesting we all chip in and hire Trevor an electric cycle for first day around Kielder as its quite hilly and not an easy ride.

We decided not to tell Trevor so it would be  a nice surprise for him on the day.

The Saturday before the ride Graeme rang me to say he was having car problems so could not use his car. 
He could get a lift through with his bike but that was all.
Quick call to Glen and he agreed he could take his car so problem averted.
