North London Branch Have a Cruise About

Hi All,

Unfortunately, though we are now riding regularly, we don't always advertise the Rides fully to keep the numbers down. Hopefully this won't continue for much longer. Sorry to anyone who is missing out.
A group of us decided we were missing the briny seas. So at the risk of copying some of Roland's fine destinations decided we would visit the lovely seafront at Walton-on-the -Naze. We had a lovely run up to Colchester via the A414, Maldon and Tiptree, but Colchester was a bit of a pain and the roads nearer the coast were a bit busy. Afterwards we returned to the 'Smoke' via Halstead and Sudbury.
We did have a casualty though! John was stung by a bee on his face and somehow we lost him when he stopped. Though he bravely carried on home okay.
It was a lovely day with refreshments and loos available at lunch and some fine country roads. I should have taken my swimming trunks though...
