Wednesday 19 September dawned with a weather forecast for a gale at midday.  I met up with about 18 Easy Riders for a bike ride heading south west with a tea stop at the Queen Anne Castle in Great Leighs. A large part of the Easy Rider group were away for a few days in...

Gwen, Ian, Brian and I set off from Braintree heading west, and met Mark pedalling up Rayne Road towards us. Mark had had the worst start to a day cycling – he started with a rear wheel puncture when he took his bike out of the shed, and had a hurried replacement of th...

10 Easy Riders turned up bright and early on Monday morning at Greenfields Centre (adjacent to Freeport).  Interestingly, BER paid for the first aid trainer, but we did not need to pay for room hire because we are an official group recognised by Braintree Council. As a...
