New year’s day traditionally sees the Coldstream Premier Cru on their bikes visiting hostelries along the circular route that takes them from Coldstream to Swinton, Leitholm and Birgham, and this year was no exception.

There were 15 riders who met at Henderson Park on January 1, 2016, aged from 10 to 60, some experienced cyclists and others just out to start the new year with a bit of exercise. The riders covered an 18 mile route and took in the villages of Swinton, Leitholm, Eccles and Birgham before returning home to Coldstream.

The ride was not competitive in any way, the atmosphere was extremely friendly and new friendships were formed.

Coldstream Premier Cru ride every Sunday (weather permitting) and meet at 9am at 8 High Street, Coldstream. Everyone is welcome - as long as they are wearing cycling helmets and under 16s are accompanied by a responsible adult. Why not give it a try ?
