Our first ride of the year and nine keen riders turned up to do battle with storm Eleanor. Problem was, the ride was cancelled, we all forgot to check the early morning emails.
Nevertheless it was decided to press on and we headed for the tea room in Felsted. The wind was gusting making riding on a busy road a little precarious, we decided to stay on the Flitch most of the way there, it was muddy but OK.
After the stop we made use of the tailwind and kept to the quieter roads back to Rayne. Only a short ride today but very nice to get out after the Christmas break.
