ICE CREAM AND SHOPPING!
A nice ride out starting from Hopwood Services (departing 10:00 a.m. sharp) with empty bladders and full fuel tanks.
We will take a route north to the Red Lion Ice Cream Farm (http://redlionfarm.co.uk/) where you can watch young cones and 99 flakes being reared, along with a selection of farm yard animals!(Cows, Goats, Alpacas, Guinea Pigs, Chickens, Ducks & Sheep).
After a short 45 minute rest stop we will then head on towards Uttoxeter and then Stoke-on-Trent, via Stafford re-fuel stop, through a variety of lanes and A roads, until we get to Trentham Gardens where shopping galore, monkey forest, garden centre and wonderful gardens await, along with plenty of eateries (https://www.trentham.co.uk/).
We will stay at Trentham for about 1 ½ hours and then head back to a central departure point, but riders are welcome to stay on at Trentham to view the wonderful gardens and monkey village if they wish – just tell us you won’t be returning with us.
The ride back will end up at Just outside Wolverhampton, Junction 2 of M54 where toilet facilities, fuel stop and Porsche dealership await and people can either make their own way home via the motorway network from M54 or be led into and then out of Wolverhampton onto the Birmingham New Road to make their own way back on A roads.
This will be a full day out and I expect to be at the final fuel stop in Wolverhampton around 15:30 to 16:00 depending on traffic and weather.
