It had been ages since we have ridden The Belvoir Loop so on Saturday I suggested it as an afternoon ride. Ricky and Steve were up for it so we gathered at mine for the relatively short drive to Stathern.

The weather forecast was showers and as we got the bikes out of the cars outside The Red Lion a few spots hit us despite us being bathed in warm sunlight. It wasn't much but we decided to bung waterproofs in our Camelbaks for the ride.
