North London Scoot Aboot On 15th May our Richard stepped up again and led a great Ride to the very fine Ambience cafe at Riverside, St Neots.
If you have not been here then you should try it. I went there for the first time many years ago on a ride led by Roland of Essex.
Afternoon stop was Tapps tearoom at Baldock where a bit of cake was indulged in. The weather was great until afternoon tea when the rain came and we had to take the Baldock bends with care.
Someone turned up on a scooter! Sacrilege I say! It was Adrian on his Honda Forza 350 which proved very capable of keeping up and, though I hate to say it, looked quite stylish.
Keith was on an old but very smart Honda CBF500, Richard on ‘old ugly’ which his very capable and favoured Honda Varadero. Simon was on his BMW… boo! hiss! And I was on my fine new Triumph 660 Tiger Sport, a lovely machine that complements my Honda Crossrunner. (Not verbally I hasten to add, though I don’t know what they say behind my back, ‘here comes the fat boy perhaps’?).
At the Ambience we met Mick who had come down from the rural wastes of Norfolk on his Pan, leaving his flock behind to chew the cud, or whatever the sheep and cows do on a Sunday. Another fine day passes….
