The ride headed out through Monkbar and along the last untouched section of the inner ring: Lord Mayor's Walk. The ride than headed past the hospital, where the ride had to evacuate the road to allow an ambulance through. Over the bridge into the Clifton area, and along Burton Stone Lane, before heading out to Clifton Green. Here the ride crossed the river, and headed through Leeman Road, before riding along Rougier Street and back across Ousebridge.
The next ride will be on 3rd March, when skies will just about still be light when we set off. And looking ahead, the first "summer time" ride will be on 6th April, Good Friday, when the ride will be advertised as family friendly (and much easier to photograph!!). It'll be interesting to see what the police decide to do next: it won't be surprising if they fail to show up until midway through yet again. Legally, they have no right to prevent the ride, nor to interfere with it, other than if the ride stops mid-road or mid-junction. Whatever happens, it should be fun non-the-less.
