On 21st November a fine gaggle of our Branch left McDees and reconvened at North Weald Airfield. There we met other Branch members, predominantly Essex and Kent, and joined Roland in presenting a cheque to the Air Ambulance. Ten of us then partook of a Ride Out, this included Les and Mike from Kent and a chap from Essex on a fine CX500. The day was bracing but fairly dry and we went to Burnham on Crouch for food, by various routes, all going through the Burnham Bends. Unfortunately our favoured option, the Cabin Dairy, was full so we partook of chips at the place opposite. No salad available unfortunately! Most of us then took a lovely route around the sticking out bit of Essex we were in before a final stop on the Maldon sea front. The tide was in and it was very picturesque. Again our favoured place was full so we had light refreshments from a stall before heading home. It was nice to see some close bonding between two of the Team... Lovely! Steve Graham.... Keith and Cliff met at Airfield only. On Ride was Dave P, Richard, Steve J, Robin, John, Jim and myself.
