This week’s ride was on a fantastic autumn day – cold and crisp, but with bright sunlight. Mick, leader of the short ride, who had thought he might not be fit to ride, was stoically hobbling; Gifford led the medium ride tailed by me, and the long ride was ably led by J...

Today’s bike ride was to Cressing Temple, but a late-availability appointment for Mick meant we had a vacancy for the lead rider of the short group. Fortunately Gifford, Bill and I were all prepared to step into the breach – which was as well, because there were 15 rid...

There were a lot of Easy Riders (Ed - 41 I hear) for this week’s ride to the golf club at Rivenhall. There were a lot of people in the middle group, so as I felt slow, I decided to ride with the short group, and it was a joyful ride. I found Bill to be an exemplary rid...

I was tail rider for the middle group, led by Steve. We pedalled off north through the park, dow...

A big thank you to Peter and Sue for hosting this year's BER BBQ - the weather was windy but kind and we even had some sun....briefly.

This was my first bike ride for a month, and I discovered I was seriously unfit! The Easy Riders had two café destinations – the Blue Egg for the middle and long rides, and Felsted for the short ride. The middle ride was led by Gifford and tailed by Julie (fresh from h...

Today the Easy Riders had several start points. I was tail rider for Adrian’s group, and had no difficulty in maintaining my position as last – I rode like a slow blob! Today I was experimenting with different ways of keeping my water bottles cool. I had two identical...

On a day when showers were forecast, there were a reduced number of Easy Riders who assembled this week. We were significantly short of people who normally ride in the longest group, and this week, they rode with only 4 members. To compensate for this, there were 13 of...

It was a reduced number of Easy Riders who assembled on Drury Lane today. The long ride, led by Tim, pedalled off to Perrywoods in Tiptree, while the short and medium rides led by Gifford and Mick headed off to Kelvedon, via Coggeshall Hamlet. 

Today, I was extolli...
