Pashley Picnic Ride 2015 – Stratford Upon Avon, The Birthplace of William Shakespeare!

Yesterday Mrs Lord and I attended our first Pashley Picnic. I am lucky enough to own a Pashley Guvnor and Mrs Lord is unlucky enough to own a mountain bike. So I hired a ladies Pashley from The Traditional Cycle Shop for my lady to ride. on trying out the stead – a lovely Princess, it was clear the frame was a little too large for my good but petite lady to ride safely.

All riders received a fantastic Pashley goody bag with treats from Belvoir & Tyrells to sustain us for the ride and ground coffee from Monsoon Estates which I am enjoying now!! After a coffee & a glass of prosecco we headed off with the other riders into the nearby countryside towards Charlcote Park where we stopped for a break which was more drinks from Belvoir, Saddle Black beers from a brewery called Purity & delcious cupcakes.

It was nice to enjoy the ride for what it was and not be the photographer for the day as I am at many events.
