North London visit Walkers.
May 29th turned out a bit colder than recently and slightly damp.
Nevertheless our Branch made a bold decision to go out for a Ride, choosing a route to try and avoid all the Essex cycling Events going on down here which were causing lots of road closures.
Eight of us on seven machines set off from Birchanger Services and took a nice country route to Walkers at Barton Mills.
We went through Newport (not the Welsh one), Saffron Walnut, Linton and Newmarket to get there. It’s a good place to eat is Walkers and we had some good grub and a nice chat.
A superb route, which just happened to be chosen by me, took us homewards through Tuddenham, Barrow and Clare before a final stop at Finchingfield.
After more sustenance, spiritual as well as food, we headed home via Dunmow and Ongar.
A great day and surprisingly quiet as regards other bikers being about. Perhaps our organised and professional demeanour intimated them? Or perhaps not. 🤔
