A week after snowmageddon which forced last weeks ride to be cancelled. Dedicated EasyRiders set off toward Bocking on a dark, drizzly, chilly morning, well wrapped up against the elements and lights on!! We cycled toward Beazley End stopping briefly for water and noticing the ditches laden with the remains of the beast from the east!! Cycling past carpets of snowdrops the Essex countryside revealing delightful signs of spring on the way with crocuses and daffodils preparing to bloom. We stopped for coffee, cake and giant scotch eggs at the George in Shalford treading carefully to avoid spreading mud throughout!
The afternoon was brightening up as we cycled toward Shalford Green, Rayne and Great Notley before heading to Braintree in glorious sunshine. No punctures only two chain challenges!!
