Frosty joins the Easy Riders

Plenty of Easy Riders congregated on Drury Lane for the last Wednesday ride before Christmas. All groups were heading to The Stores at Great Waltham – Long ride led by Tim, Medium led by Jim and Short group led by Mick. The short group pedalled out straight down London Road, along Route 16 through Great Notley and then straight down the old 131 through Great Leighs.

The short group pedalled out along Manor Road, giving way at Railway Street. As we had an altercation with a bus driver here last week, I carefully inspected the road markings - which were virtually invisible.
