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...

Some of the Easy Riders may know I thoroughly enjoy being a student, and my latest foray has been into poetry.  I’ve struggled writing my essay over the last few months, so decided to try verse, as a different format.  Class members described poetry as ‘a stockcube of...

This week, Bill Twinn and I were leading and tailing the 11 riders on the short ride, heading to Greenstead Green. The medium and long rides went out to the Black Horse café at Earls Colne. 

Bill led us north to Bocking, and we toiled up Bocking Church Street, cros...

My plan for today, was to ride 21 miles to the visitor centre at Abberton reservoir, meet Jim for a cup of tea and elevenses, put the bike in the back of the car to go home, then meet Mick et al at the Scout fete. Famous last words!

About 9am I pedalled off down London...

And today was my first time as Ride Leader. I got off to a bit of an inauspicious start – I looked at the route description, and my map and could not work out some of the instructions. No matter, I thought – I’ll take my map and ask Mick to point it out. Except when I...

As usual the Easy Riders anticipated plenty of members riding, so we had two destinations for a stop.

The Short group went to a new venue Roundwood Nursery at the top of Bocking Church Street, where the tea room is staffed by people with learning disabilities. I think i...

37 Easy Riders split into three groups as usual, led by Mick, Peter Short and Bill Twinn. We set off, with a couple of minutes between the groups.  

Health & Safety tip for the day comes from a conversation before we set off. One of our girls (can’t remember who!!) said...

Today’s ride was meant to be so easy! Maurice and I had decided upon an easy spin along the Flitch Way to the Green Café at Little Canfield. Same route out and back, along the familiar Route 16. No need to take the map. Famous Last Words!  

We pedall...
