North London Ride 28th May

Hi All……

North London lunch at Walkers

On 28th May, there were worries about heavy bank holiday weekend traffic and some road closures due to a big cycle Event (I had to push my bike along a bit of pavement and ride across a field footpath to make the start).

Nevertheless six of us enjoyed a great ride in the now warm temperatures, that consisted of great bends and not too much traffic.

Going via Takeley, Thaxted, Haverhill and Bury St Eddy we arrived at the fine Walkers at Barton Mills.

We had a lovely snack here and met our spiritual leader Graham who had ridden out separately to meet us.

We then took my favourite route home bound through Barrow, Wickhambrook and Clare before a final stop at Parish’s in Thaxted.

Here Richard kindly paid for afternoon tea and cakes for us all.

Our route home from here generally had to mirror the route out (the cycling) with people splitting off as required. A fine day indeed.
