Lazy wind

There was a decent turn out for the February 40+ mile ride despite what my old grandma would have described as a lazy wind because it couldn't be bothered to blow around you - just straight through you. It made for a very sharp ride. Mick led us via Rayne, Stebbing, Lindsell, Great Easton, Broxted, Molehill Green and Takeley to the very welcoming Cafe at Thremhall Park providing hot food and drink with free refills. Suitably fortified the return journey was made via Takeley (where we naturally picked up some mud from the Flitch Way), Great Canfield, High Roding, Onslow Green, Felsted and Rayne - a total in excess of 44 miles. Hoping for more spring-like conditions for the March 40+

Dry, Cold and Windy

With today’s ride having no reference to cider, a virus or Compo, nineteen hardy riders assembled for the rides, competently being led by Peter S and Adrian, on the shorter and longer ride respectively to the Sandwich Bar in Kelvedon, always a popular venue when it comes to bacon butties. On Mick’s return from down under and much higher temperatures than today, by nearly thirty five degrees on some days, he was still adjusting to the UK winter, being well wrapped up and riding a fixed gear. On the longer route Adrian led us via Perry Green, Silver End to the venue where some discussions took place about activities to participate in during 2018, one being Eroica in Derbyshire and the Dunwich
