Another great ride in the books. Everything was perfect in my estimation. Starting with great company thx to Jon, Brian, David, and Alan and Nigel for making long drive for the ride. We were even given a day that improved as the ride went along. I don't think we set any land speed records on this one but if there's a record for enjoyment I'd cast a ballot for us.
We set off from Shepreth on to Bicicletta De Cafe in Saffron Waldon where we were joined by Brians wife for a nice break before heading back. Oh, I best not forget to thank Brians wife for the lovely tea cake which made for the perfect excuse to stop alone the way but really for my legs to recover after some bad gear changes, lol. Good times as always, until next time.

Ride on the 29th of October is a go. I'll have full ride details sometime tomorrow but we'll be meeting at Scampers parking lot in Soham. Working out the best time to head out for the pub we're headed to. It has a noon opening so we may be in for a 10 am go unless we choose to take it slow but this route is fairly flat and quick paced if I recall rightly Dave?
Anyway more to follow.

Finer details as promised. 
The route is estimating roughly a 90 minute ride so setting off at 9 is touch early but between pull ups, cake breaks and touring the Sluice I reckon that'll cover the extra 35 to 40 minutes we have to waste until the Jenyns Arms opens at noon. I think thats sound planning if there is such a thing with planning a ride. The last time I tried this my spokes on my rear wheel started popping like popcorn. There's free parking at Scampers and plenty of it so no worries there. Ok, less blah blah blah and more DETAILS!

DETAIL:
meeting time Sunday the 29th of Octobrer at 0900
parking location Northfield Business Park, Northfield Rd, Soham, Ely CB7 5UE, UK
planned route https://goo.gl/maps/UDvHt2Mg6422
Jenyns Arms http://www.jenynsarms.com/

As always if there are any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Hi. Anybody mind if I join you? I'll be slow because I'm recovering from an op and I'm riding a new (to me) recumbent. I don't mind if I get dropped and I don't want anybody to wait for me if I do. I'm a big boy now and I can read a map 😊

Everyone's welcome and the pace is always determined by the slowest rider so don't feel pressure or put out. Plus, two of us know the route so it's no problem to split the group.

FYI: For the rest of you guys don't forget the clocks go back this Sunday.

My van has just sold on Ebay so I won't be along tomorrow!
Hope you have a great ride and hope to see you all soon.

Hi Guys. How did it go yesterday? Did you get to Denver and back without incident?

Oh yes. There was a bit of a headwind on the way but after a roast top up at the pub and the wind at our backs we got home like a rocket. That was a brilliant route. Thanks to Dave and Will for organising.
