North London go gambolling gaily
On 21st August the weather was lovely and seven of us set off for lunch at St Neots.
A lovely route took us through Stansted Mountfitchet, Newport, Royston and Gamlingay (geddit!) before arriving at the very nice Ambiance cafe, Riverside, St Neots for food.
We then set off and went through St Ives before my generally fine leading lost the others near Ramsey.
I would say that an unfortunate conjunction of traffic, road geography and an imminent global catastrophe were the principal reasons, ie … it was just unlucky.
I tried to find the others but failed and they used large roads to get to the next stop where I later met them.
I had done the intended route using the super B660.
We had a nice chat and tea at Tapps tearoom before heading home on the Baldock bends.
A great day out. Enjoyed immensely it was by Richard, Robin, Keith, Simon, Martin, Paul and myself with a special appearance by our honoured Secretary, Steve J, at Tapps.
