Mobberley Seven (Eight) of the year 2013!!
From Good Friday through to the final sunny weekends of September and maybe October if the weather holds up, the legendary Mobberley Eight bike rides have become an institution!! The tradition is to cycle (or walk) the 8 pubs of Mobberley where a drink or more is enjoyed in each pub.
In fact the true Mobberley eight no longer exists as the true historic Mobberley pubs are the Bird in Hand, The Church Inn, The Bulls Head, The Roebuck, The Plough and Flail, The Chapel House and the Railway inn.
Cyclists add the Frozen Mop or the Stag but nowhere in the history of Mobberley are these two pubs mentioned mainly because they aren’t in Mobberley!!
Maybe the bike ride should be called the Magnificent Mobberley Seven!!
We have decided to recognise what we feel to be the most magnificent Mobberley ‘seven’ cyclists of 2013 and they are the 101 Dalmatians and Cruella de Vil!!! They are pictured below. Well done to all of them and as far as we are concerned they are the best Mobberley ‘Seven’ riders of 2013 as voted by all our teams at both our Mobberley Pubs!!!!
We will be arranging a cup presentation and each year at the end of the Mobberley Seven season we will recognise the best dressed and best behaved Mobberley Sevens!!
