On the 2nd May the Rugby Group celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a ride to Fenny Compton and a group meal, and an acknowledgement of the role played by Avril in the establishment of the group and continuous support.
With at least 50 rides per year the Wednesday Rides have exceeded 1250 in the 25 years and more than 70 names are recorded in the runs register.
A report from Mark Jacobsen
What miserable weather, wet and windy, as 4 of us set off from Birdingbury for Lighthorne. While extending our coffee stop, the sky turned blue and sunshine greeted us! With 10 at the lunch meet we learned that Graham, Sandra and Avril set off directly for Fenny Compton but, being drenched by Barby, they turned back to change and use four wheels! I reminded Avril of my first ride with CTC Rugby: meeting at Newbold only Avril was there. The rain was certainly worse than yesterday! We rode directly to Ullesthorpe after which it was back home on squelching roads!
