Sunday’s Gainsborough Aegir Cycling Club leisure ride to Retford was enjoyed by Daniel Nicholson, Colin Smith, Trevor Halstead, Loll Dickenson and Dave Chaffey .
Refreshed after a lunch stop the riders departed Retford along Leverton Road, and made the steep ascent of Schrog Hill, 90 metres above sea level, one of the highest points in Nottinghamshire.
The 50 mile ride took in breathtaking views, crossing the Chesterfield Canal at different points.
This Sunday there will be options for rides for differing ability groups, with dinner at A Bite to Eat Café, Messingham.
Meet Roseway, Gainsborough 9.20am.
