North London Don the 6 finger Gloves and Head to Swaffham.

North London frozen four fast track to Swaffham 

On 5th March on a rather cold but dry day four of us met at Birchanger Services for a Ride led by Dave Plumb.

Apart from myself we were joined by Martin and Richard and from the mix I anticipated a fast and flowing ride.

That is certainly what we got! A great route of fast and flowing roads took us to Swaffham via Saffron Walnut, Linton, Newmarket, Mildenhall and Brandon.

It took us just over two hours and I was cold by the time we got there.

Dave treated us to a fine brunch in the Market cafe and we warmed up near a log fire. Our return route took us to via Bury St Eddies and Finchingfield to Parishes at Thaxted where Martin treated us to afternoon tea.

For three of us the last leg of the journey took us through Dunmow and on to Ongar.

A fine day indeed with great riding and good roads. I think my new Bridgestone 023 tyres are well bedded in on the Crossrunner now!

We did over 200 miles and the temperature hit a high of 6 degrees….
